God's Gypsy explores the romantic and controversial life of the 16th-century Spanish mystic who became a Catholic Church reformer before she became a saint. Adapted from the award-winning Barbara Mujica's well-researched 2007 novel Sister Teresa, Coco Blignaut wrote and stars in the play, which follows Teresa from her days as a spoiled young girl sent to a convent, through her intense spiritual awakening, to her work as an influential theologian devoted to mental prayer, while also revealing her secret Jewish ancestry, risky political moves during the Spanish Inquisition and more.

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.
