Description

Join award-winning playwright Heather Raffo for an artist talk at AUC’s Malak Gabr Arts Theater, on February 18 at 5:30 pm followed by the opening of her hit, Off-Broadway play, Noura, at The Gerhart Theater at 7 pm.

The play brings the experience of Iraqi refugees to the stage through the compelling story of Noura and her Chaldean Catholic family who fled their home in Mosul, Iraq eight years ago to the United States. As the family celebrates Christmas and their new life in New York City, a visit from a young Iraqi refugee from their hometown stirs up memories they had tried to leave behind and forces them to confront where they are, where they’ve been and who they’ve become. Inspired by the stories and lives of Arab-American women and loosely based on Ibsen’s A Doll’s HouseNoura investigates definitions of home and tells the story of how we try to balance our past with the present.
