About this show

Amidst the violence that engulfed southern Iraq after the British withdrawal of 2007, a sharp-witted Iraqi woman goes in search of her missing husband at the behest of her mother-in-law.

When creating the play for the Basra to Boston project, we drew on a transnational collaboration that took place throughout 2016 and 2017, as well as playwrights' memories of Iraq in 2007 as a U.S. soldier.

Bride of the Gulf is a new play that tackles the normality of war in Basra, Iraq through the deep, yet hostile relationship between a widow and her mother-in-law.
