About the Show

It’s Christmas Eve in New York City, and Noura — a newly minted U.S. citizen — is preparing to host an Iraqi meal and growing more homesick by the minute. Her husband and son have fully embraced their American names and identities, but Noura feels restless and displaced. Even so, she eagerly welcomes her dinner guests until secrets are revealed and the evening begins to unravel. Inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, this brilliant new play is a poignant exploration of motherhood, marriage and identity in modern America.

Themes

  • The history of Iraq is complex and multi-layered, like it is in most countries and communities. Through a few characters, this play focuses on the micro level of impact from the macro level of challenges happening around them. How might seeing the personal impact on people affect our view of the larger situations at hand?
  • This family endured a great deal of pain and loss when they were forced to leave their country and start over somewhere else. Noura, the main character, tries to define what “home” means now. Are there ways one can keep their culture and heritage with them, even though they are physically in a different country? If so, how might you imagine this being done?
