WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Six Figures Theatre Company presents Baghdad Burning, a full-length play adapted from the Girl Blog from Iraq written by Riverbend, an anonymous twenty-five-year old Iraqi woman living in Baghdad. Already familiar to thousands of web surfers and a major influence in the blogging community, Riverbend's text is brought to life through a stage adaptation by Six Figures artistic director Kimberly Kefgen and literary manager Loren Ingrid Noveck. Since August 2003, Riverbend has chronicled her day-to-day life as an educated Muslim woman in occupied Iraq with humor, insight, compassion, and candor. A multicultural ensemble cast will utilize music, movement, monologue and more, to explore America's encounter with Riverbend's complex reality: her love for Iraq and its people; the devastation caused by war and occupation; and her mounting fear as fundamentalists gain power and limit the freedoms she once enjoyed. Post-performance talk-back sessions will be held Sunday, March 13, Thursday, March 17 and Sunday, March 20. The cast, director and a series of guest speakers will participate.
