Apricot Stones

 

Review


This new work—indeed, first play—by local writer Carmen Morgan is an emotional gut-punch. Set in 1980 Kabul during the Soviet-Afghan war, Apricot Stones follows Adela, played with defiant intensity by Rebecca John, a young woman trying to resist the brutal repression of her and her countrywomen by fundamentalist religious thugs. There’s violence in the streets and the home, women are beaten at home and at the market for the crime of being alive in a repressive society. It’s a timely warning: it’s only through resisting hate and ignorance that we have freedom and love—don’t take it for granted. - Josh Marcellin
