The Maggie Tree presents 9 Parts of Desire from April 6 to 15 at the Varscona Theatre, 10329 83 Ave

The Off Broadway hit play 9 Parts of Desire, written and performed by Heather Raffo, was inspired by a trip to a modern art museum in Baghdad in August 1993 and details the lives of nine Iraqi women that span the decades between the first and second Gulf Wars and occupation. Described by The New Yorker as “an example of how art can remake the world”, it is a portrait of the extraordinary (and ordinary) lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women: a sexy painter, a radical Communist, doctors, exiles, wives and lovers. This work delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in a country overshadowed by war. The Maggie Tree is bringing 9 Edmonton Actors together to create the many faces that make up our 9 Parts of Desire.

Tickets are $30 for Adults, $25 for Students/Seniors, plus applicable fees.
