In conjunction with the LSU Theater department, the Honors College has reserved an entire performance of Nine Parts of Desire for its students. Set in Iraq, London and New York City between 2003 and present day, the 90-minute play is the tale of nine female Iraqi women of various ages and professions telling their heart wrenching-stories primarily through monologue. In titling her work, playwright Heather Raffo drew upon the phrase attributed to an early imam, “God created sexual desire in ten parts; then he gave nine parts to women and one part to men.” Admission to this event is free for Honors College students. Honors students are able to bring one guest. Please arrive by 7:00 PM. Also, there will be a conversation with the director and actors and Honors College students following the performance.
