The Hudson School to present 9 Parts of Desire
by Heather Raffo
Hudson Productions will present 9 Parts of Desire by Heather Raffo at The Hudson School (601 Park Avenue, Hoboken, NJ) on Friday March 12 and Saturday March 13 at 8pm and Sunday March 14 at 6pm. Tickets are $10. Call 201-659-8335 Ext 317 for reservations.
Heather Raffo was inspired to write 9 Parts of Desire when she made a life-changing trip to Iraq shortly after the Gulf War. There, while visiting her relatives, Ms. Raffo came to know and learn the stories of many Iraqi women. Their accounts of their experiences — many of which are hard to imagine — moved Raffo to create these portraits of women who endure and survive through courage, hope, sacrifice and love.
The play features faculty, alumni and students of The Hudson School including Sarah Alkulaibi of West New York, NJ, Monica Carter of Brooklyn, NY, Josette Dwyer of Jersey City, NJ, Sara Herrera of Brooklyn, NY, Anne-Marie Marcazzo of Hoboken, NJ, Eylul Nazlioglu of Hoboken, NJ, Emily Turonis of Hoboken, NJ, and Maryel Valentino of Jersey City, NJ.
