The oldest, Oreta, remains tormented and unable to escape the harsh memories of the past, while the younger girls take tentative steps towards building new lives. Meanwhile, the youngest -- a boy named Donzo -- pays plenty of attention to his sisters, hoping to learn more about their vague family history. Learn More

Timely topic based on real life experiences at three parties by the playwright who was present. Well acted with a limited amount of space for the actual dancing and music portions. Having just traveled in the region of Kurdistan and Eastern Turkey as well Iran, i was probably more engaged than the average San Diegan.
Newroz Piroz is based loosely on a real party where Tariq, a Kurd decides to throw a Newroz party. Unfortunately most of his friends are Turks and Armenians. He only knows two Kurds to invite and he doesn’t know them very well. He invites them to a pre-party to be sure they understand whom the other guests are and to reinforce the rules of engagement as he see’s fit. Mainly, he is concerned that there should be no instance where information is divulged in a manner that could weigh unfavorable on the Kurds. He puts it this way: “We do not want to give the others Ammunition against us because they still have some of that feeling as, well you know…”. So the rules of the party are to not engage in any political discussions only drinking, eating and dancing.
