The Black Eyed Summary

Betty Shamieh is a playwright, author, screenwriter and actor. Her newest play, The Black Eyed, depicts four Arab women from across the ages who meet in the afterlife. As these women - who include the Biblical Delilah and a secular modern Arab-American - struggle to understand their lives and the choices they made, this shockingly funny play skewers traditional views on sex, family and violence. The New York Times says, "[Betty Shamieh] has the playwright's most essential gift: the passion for talk. Her rich, urgent prose will fling you into a character's life as though it were your own.
