About This Show

Inspired by Ancient Cordoba and workshopped in Iraq, London, and New York, this international play returns to New York to continue a cultural conversation about freedom, identity, and the possibility of peaceful coexistence. Playwright Jessica Litwak spins a beautiful duet between a Jewish American woman and an Iraqi Muslim man. Bound together by circumstance, these two people from such different walks of life confront their insecurities, fears, and desires.

Exploring these tensions through puppetry and poetry, the play invites the audience to question the role that art can play in creating community, and conversation, and most importantly, peace. Each performance will be followed by on opportunity for the audience to try their hand at poetry composition and a dynamic guided discussion on interfaith issues, featuring noted scholars, journalists, and cultural and civic leaders.
