Old Dominion University’s Goode Theatre

The perfume of Persian nights will transport the audience into a fragrant evening of stories, song, and surprises.

An original show, it explores the Persian Jewish woman’s experiences as a child fleeing Iran, an immigrant adapting to a new home, a college student wishing to move to a dorm by defying her traditional father, a writer making it in America, and an immigrant celebrating Thanksgiving.

The show features works by Persian powerhouse writers, Gina Nahai, Angella Nazarian, Farideh Goldin, Esther Amini, and Dora Levy Mossanen.

The production is a collaborative event sponsored by Old Dominion University’s Institute for Jewish Studies & Interfaith Understanding and ODU Theatre/ODURep and the Jewish Women’s Theatre of Los Angeles.

Tickets are $15. For more information, call ODU’s Arts and Letters box office at 757-683-5305.
