Very creative, powerful and important work from Nagham Wehbe. It made me think, feel and questions my unconscious prejudice with humour and compassion. ... full review

Parking (not!) almost won, but I prevailed! Hugest apologies for being late. But the play was a true thought provoker. Shukran for doing this! I went in thinking it was a generic overlook at Arab women... (mostly Muslim women), but the last parts about Beirut hit especially hard. Knowing so many Beirutis back in the 60's and loving them, what an eye opener.... always thought of them as cosmopolitan and liberated, and how refreshing for that part of the world. No doubt the French influence after WWI. Beiruti ladies seemed miles apart from all the other Mid East countries... and then the bloody pointless wars started in '75. Always wanted to go to Beirut more than anywhere else... never made it. And the POV that Christian Arab women a... full review

A very interesting story for women, by women which I love. And it shed some light on what it really means to be an Arab woman, clearing up all the stereotypes and misconceptions. My favorite line of the show was something along the lines of- if you didn't know there are liberated arab women then that's your problem, not ours. I loved that!! Very good show!!... full review

I saw the confession of an Arab woman 2 time... I absolutely love it simply because it's real characters are very well connected to the wall with the wall directed only gets better every time I see you I want to put out a review to show my love and appreciate to the work the cast and crew putting in this masterpiece. The lead actress is absolutely amazing I couldn't stop watching her she was in the character from the beginning and the end of the actresses and actors are so good it's like watching HBO live on stage I love it congratulations ... full review

Powerful personal journey of a Middle Eastern woman that's very relatable. Well told with good character and story build up. I found it to be a very creative way to tell a very personal story. What's on the surface is never the whole story. I love how this play digs and reaches deep emotions and needs that we, as women, sometimes learn to bury. I was touched and inspired, and that's good enough for me. ... full review
