9 Parts of Desire at Performance Network

Lisa and I saw "Heather Roffo's 9 Parts of Desire" at Performance Network in Ann Arbor this weekend.

It is a one-woman show with nine characters, all of whom are Iraqi women. They range from intellectuals in exile in London to sellers of stolen goods on the street. The writing and acting are both amazing and the play packs a powerful punch. It is political in the large sense but not the small. It took me a couple of hours to recover afterwards.

This is one of the best shows at Performance Networks in our three years of having season tickets.

Highly recommended.
