Live Theatre Workshop will perform an off-Broadway play, “9 Parts of Desires,” from Oct. 16 to Nov. 15.
The play, written by Heather Raffo, was inspired by the playwright’s trip to a modern art museum in Baghdad in August 1993. It details the lives of nine Iraqi women and spans the decades between the first and second Gulf Wars and occupation.
Performances, directed by Glen Coffman and featuring Lori Hunt, begin at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 3 p.m. on Sundays.
“9 Parts of Desires” explores the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in a country overshadowed by war. The New York Times described the play as powerful, impassioned, vivid and memorable.
General admission is $20, discounted to $18 for students, seniors ages 62+ and military. Final Thursday tickets cost $14.
The Live Theatre Workshop is located at 5317 E. Speedway Blvd., on the north side of Speedway between Rosemont and Craycroft.
