by Shahrzad Amin – WNN Breaking

(WNN) MALMO, Sweden: Heather Raffo wrote her award winning play Nine Parts of Desire after the US attack on Iraq and the work has been staged several times in various countries, either by herself or by others. This is the first time the play has been produced in Sweden, albeit with some small changes. In the Swedish version, with Raffo’s approval, an extra section has been added to the play.

The co-writer for this version of Nine Parts of Desire is Parvin Ardalan, Iranian feminist, human rights activist and guest journalist of the city of Malmo, Sweden. Ardalan is also founder of Change for Equality reporting current news about human rights conditions for women rights defenders in Iran.
