My Name is Inanna & Medea Was Born in Fallujah
January 11 - January 13, 2013
A Staged Reading
Written by Ezzat Goushegir
Directed by Azar Kazemi
My Name Is Inanna and Medea Was Born in Faluja are two powerful new one act plays by award winning Iranian American playwright Ezzat Goushegir. Goushegir’s passionate and lyrical woman centered voice blends classical archetypes and contemporary realities with an honesty that is shockingly raw and brutal. Political tyranny, democratic yearnings, exile, betrayal, and the confines of gender seamlessly crescendo in these stunning tales of modern Middle Eastern women.
Featuring Silk Road Rising favorites Diana Simonzadeh (Scorched, Night Over Erzinga) and David Rhee (Yellow Face, Silk Road Cabaret).
Image used for this reading is "Goddess Inanna" by Enas Murad.
