As topical as today's headlines, Nine Parts of Desire - written and performed by Heather Raffo — promises to change forever the way you'll think about the women of the Mideast. A portrait of the extraordinary — and ordinary — lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women, this solo work lifts the veil on exactly what it means to be a woman in the age-old war zone that is Iraq.
