What does "home" mean and what will we do to protect it? As Noura and her husband Tareq prepare to celebrate their first Christmas as American citizens, she looks forward to welcoming a special guest -- Maryam, a young Iraqi refugee. But the girl's arrival upends the family, forcing them to confront where they are, where they've been and who they have become. "Noura" challenges our notions of modern marriage and motherhood through a portrait of Iraqi immigrants living in New York. 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 Doll's House", Henrik Ibsen's classic drama of one mother's quest to balance her duty with her identity. "Noura" is presented at D.C.'s Lansburgh Theatre as part of the Women's Voices Theater Festival. [less-]
