The Noor Play Festival is a festival of short comedic & dramatic plays that deal with the Middle East. Its mission, as the name Noor (light) suggests, is to enlighten savvy theatergoers about the Middle East while entertaining them. Each play has at least one character that is Middle-Eastern. However, playwrights, actors, directors, technical crew- and above all, audiences- don't have to be Middle Eastern at all. Noor Festival themes embrace a wide geographical area including: Iran, Afghanistan, Israel, Pakistan and all the Arab countries.
