Heather Raffo; dir: Joanna Settle.
Eight years ago, Noura and her family fled their home in Iraq. Today, she plans the perfect Christmas dinner to celebrate their new life in New York. But when the arrival of a visitor stirs up long-buried memories, she and her husband are forced to confront the cost of their choices, and retrace the past they left behind. With compassion and startling clarity, Heather Raffoâ€™s play charts the intricate pathways of motherhood and marriage â€” and the fragile architecture of what we call home.
