Bay Area Premiere – Iraqi in NYC worried about losing touch with her homeland

Extended through Feb. 9!

Eight years after fleeing their home in Iraq, Noura and her family celebrate Christmas, and their new life, in New York City.

But when the arrival of a visitor stirs up long-buried memories, Noura and her husband are forced to confront the cost of their choices; the past they left behind.

Inspired by stories from Arab-American women and created in response to Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, Heather Raffo’s Noura charts the intricate pathways of motherhood and marriage—and the fragile architecture of what we call home.

Produced In Association with Golden Thread Productions

“I am most excited to be in conversations with Marin audiences about their views of belonging, individual identity and the architecture of what they call home. As the characters of Noura attempt to balance their individual pursuits with a search for community, I believe it is quite possibly a balance with which many of us struggle.” — Heather Raffo
