Illinois Theatre Series | Described by The New Yorker as “an example of how art can remake the world,” 9 Parts of Desire tells the stories of nine Iraqi and Iraqi-American women in the decades between the Persian Gulf Wars and during the US occupation. Whether a painter, a doctor, a communist, a wife, a lover, or an exile, each of these women represents extraordinary as well as ordinary experiences, which bring into sharp relief the truth of women’s lives in the shadows of war.
