My Name Is Inanna and Medea Was Born in Fallujah are powerful one act plays by award-winning Iranian American playwright Ezzat Goushegir.
Goushegir’s passionate, lyrical, and woman-centered voice blends classical archetypes and contemporary realities with an honesty that is shockingly raw and brutal. Political tyranny, democratic yearnings, exile, betrayal, and the confines of gender seamlessly crescendo in these stunning tales of modern Middle Eastern women.
