A Second Birth

A NEW PLAY BY ARIEL MITCHELL
DIRECTED BY KAYLA FRIEND

In a rural village in southern Afghanistan, a family struggles with the tradition of bacha posh - the practice of raising a daughter to act, dress, and behave like a boy. As her feminine features begins to blossom, Nasim(a) must confront the relationships of her past and the traditions of her future to find out who she truly is.

Please join us immediately following the March 15th performance of A Second Birth, for a one night only special event. We will be hosting a panel discussion in honor of International Women's Day and Nawroz (the Afghan New Year) on women's issues in Afghanistan, theater, music and tech. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
