Reviews & Ratings
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.
