Amid the violence that followed the British withdrawal from Basra in 2007, a sharp-witted Iraqi woman searches for her missing husband at the behest of her mother-in-law. A world-premiere new work dedicated to the resilience of life in Basra, Iraq, and based upon a collaboration of New York ensemble Thinkery and Verse with transnational artists from Iraq's largest port city. With surprising humor and hard-earned insight, this unique piece explores the conflict from the Iraqi perspective.
