BAGHDAD BURNING

Genre: Drama
Text by Riverbend, Directed by Kimberly Kefgen

A full-length play adapted from the "Girl Blog from Iraq" written by Riverbend, an anonymous twenty-five-year old Iraqi woman living in Baghdad. Already familiar to thousands of web surfers and a major influence in the blogging community, Riverbend's text will be brought to life through an adaptation by Six Figures Theatre Company.

Since August 2003, Riverbend has chronicled her day-to-day life as an educated Muslim woman in occupied Iraq with humor, insight, compassion, and candor. A multicultural ensemble cast will utilize music, movement, monologue and more, to explore America's encounter with Riverbend's complex reality: her love for Iraq and its people; the devastation caused by war and occupation; and her mounting fear as fundamentalists gain power and limit the freedoms she once enjoyed.

Adapted by Kimberly Kefgen and Loren Ingrid Noveck
