Once began as a music-fueled indie film that won the nation's heart in 2006, taking home the Best Original Song Oscar for its haunting love ballad "Falling Slowly." Now, Once has taken the Broadway stage by storm, earning eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The romantic tale follows a downtrodden Dublin street musician and a delightfully quirky Czech woman who meet in the least likely of places -- a vacuum cleaner repair shop. Their complicated lives make the path to love a rocky one, and they channel their feelings into the music they produce together -- him on guitar, her on piano, two voices harmonizing and setting them free, for a time, from the harsh realities of their lives.

This powerfully explosive play takes us under the veil as one actress performs nine stunning portraits drawn over a cross section of Iraqi women from ages 13 to 70.
9 Parts of Desire delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in the age-old war zone that is Iraq, providing us with an unusually timely meditation on the ancient, the modern and the feminine in a country overshadowed by war.
