About this show

My Heart Is in the East is a duet (with puppets) that takes place in two time periods: present-day Iraq, Beirut, and New York City; and 11th-century Cordoba, where Muslims and Jews lived in a peaceful coexistence inspired by vibrant poetic exchange. Following each performance is a poetry contest. This play is a humorous, passionate, and poetic exploration of history as a model for building peace.
