A creative, avant-garde approach to the issue of female identity and voice in an oppressive, patriarchal world (notice the word world, not culture), Confessions of an Arab Woman delivers a powerful punch that exposes both the personal realities and stereotypes endured by a contemporary Lebonese feminist. This play takes the experience of one woman and universalizes it to all women to emphasize that misogyny and oppression are issues shouldered by women worldwide and are not unique to one particular culture or religion.... full review

Unexpected (in a good way!) presentation yet directly hit me hard with the reality in the book, I killed Scheherazade by Joumana Haddad. I believe anybody can relate to a few or more scenes/roles of this play, regardless age, nationality & gender. Salute to the director Nagham Wehbe, actors & all crews!... full review

Finally, in a time where white feminism flirts with supporting imperialist women in power, this work highlights the importance of intersectionality and solidarity that listens to the voice of those it claims to support.... full review

It was a thought-provoking, intense, passionate display of the barriers that needed to be overcome regarding the image of what a traditional Arab woman was supposed to be. I was very impressed by the way the story was told and the performers were engaging and fun to watch. I was definitely amazed by it! ... full review
