Review by LENA BEAINI

June 12, 2017

What I liked

I loved the controversial aspect of the entire play. It highlights what Lebanese women and women in general have to go through when faced with double standards.

The play was beautifully and creatively done. The multiple women all representing Joumana’s mind at different stages in her life is something I think all women can relate to…this play should be seen by all Arab women in an attempt to help break the chain attached at birth.

What I didn't like

It’s not that I didn’t like anything specific per say…but maybe the play could touch base on how Lebanon is more free relative to the surrounding Arab societies…but still has a long way to go.

My overall impression

As a Lebanese woman, I was very impressed with the play. It was refreshing and I think about time we challenge traditional views on Arab women.
