What does home mean and what will we do to protect it?
Noura challenges our notions of modern marriage and motherhood through a portrait of Iraqi immigrants living in New York. As Noura and her husband Tareq prepare to celebrate their first Christmas as American citizens, she looks forward to welcoming a special guestMaryam, a young Iraqi refugee. But the girls arrival upends the family, forcing them to confront where they are, where theyve been and who they have become.
In this world-premiere production, award-winning playwright and performer Heather Raffo (Nine Parts of Desire) draws on personal stories of Arab American women responding to A Dolls House, Henrik Ibsens classic drama of one mothers quest to balance her duty with her identity.
