A LAB Spotlight Production:
A Timely and Provocative New Play

Award-winning Iraqi-American playwright and performer Heather Raffo (9 Parts of Desire) teams up with director Joanna Settle to examine the issue of fractured American identity through the lens of an Iraqi refugee family in this timely re-imagining of Ibsen’s iconic A Doll’s House. Searing and urgent, Noura is a passionate exploration of contemporary feminism that reflects the dilemma facing modern America: do we live for each other or for ourselves?

Raffo’s play was created after years of work in Arab American communities in NYC where she discussed A Doll’s House with Middle Eastern women who shared personal stories about how the play related to their own lives, bridging their cultural roots with their present circumstances.

There is no late seating for this event.
