Commissioned by Palindrome Productions of London and adapted for the stage from stories by Afghan women, these two one-act plays--Parwana: They Bear All the Pain by Alia Bano and Dust Allergy by Nushin Arbabzadah--offer a rare and revealing look into Afghan women’s lives.
Free and open to the public.
Immediately following the performances there will be a Chai Khana Social Hour in the Lower Lobby of the Wexner Center for the Arts.
These performances are part of On the Front Lines, a series of events centered on Afghanistan, organized by Arts and Humanities Distinguished Professor Lesley Ferris and sponsored by a Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme Creation Grant. Co-sponsored by The Department of History, the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, the Middle East Studies Center, the Wexner Center for the Arts, and the Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Service and the Lawrence and Lee Theatre Institute at the University Library.
