9 PARTS OF DESIREThe Off Broadway hit play, written and performed by Heather Raffo, was inspired by a trip to a modern art museum in Baghdad in August 1993 and details the lives of nine Iraqi women that span the decades between the first and second Gulf Wars and the occupation.

Described by The New Yorker as "an example of how art can remake the world", it is a portrait of the extraordinary (and ordinary) lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women: a sexy painter, a radical Communist, doctors, exiles, wives and lovers, and delves into the many conflicting and complex aspects of what it means to be a woman in a country overshadowed by war. A meditation on the ancient, the modern and the feminine in a war torn world.
