    I, Unseen

    Read the Offoffoff review

    I, Unseen is a portrait of the women of Afghanistan and what they were enduring on a daily basis from the viewpoint of an American psychologist researching the effects on these well-educated women who are now unable to work, get healthcare, or even leave the house without a close male relative. Originally written as a means to inform the public of a womans plight in this brutal society, I, Unseen is even more moving and important for audiences to see today. Marika Mashburn did not originally set out to write a play about Afghanistan or the Taliban. "Two years ago, I barely knew where Afghanistan was located on the map, much less the crimes that have been legally committed against the women living there over the last decade, says playwright Mashburn. However, I wanted to write a play about women n the 21st century. This subject came to me after seeing a speech given by avis Leno to the United State Senate about gender apartheid in Afghanistan. She noted the contributions of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), and after learning more about the situation from their website, I knew I wanted to bring the stories of these women to the public."
