First Look at Goodman Theatre's Yasmina's Necklace
Ann Filmer directs Rohina Malik's play about a young Iraqi artist.
The Goodman Theatre production of playwright Rohina Malik's Yasmina's Necklace recently began performances for its limited run through November 19. Check out photos from the production, directed by Ann Filmer, in the gallery below.
Yasmina's Necklace is the story of Yasmina, a young Iraqi artist who has hardened herself against the possibility of finding happiness after fleeing to Chicago from her war-torn homeland. But when she meets Sam, a man with his own emotional setbacks, what had seemed unthinkable becomes tantalizingly real.
Susaan Jamshidi leads the cast as Yasmina. She is joined by Michael Perez, Salar Ardebili, Rom Barkhordar, Laura Crotte, Allen Gilmore, Martin Hanna, Amro Salama, and Frank Sawa.
The creative team includes Joe Schermoly (set design), Rachel M. Sypniewski (costume design), Cat Wilson (lighting design), and Barry Bennett (sound design).
