Iraqi American writer and performer Heather Raffo brings her insightful performance to the MCA Stage. The work depicts the realities for Iraqi women, both under Saddam Hussein and since his expulsion. Iraq’s tumultuous history has frayed and fractured these women’s worlds, some beyond repair. Raffo, who performs all roles, spent 11 years interviewing Iraqi women on four continents to create this “theatrical mosaic” that reflects the conflicts, realities, and cultural shifts experienced by Iraqi women today.
