HOW TO HAVE FUN IN A CIVIL WAR, MY CONVERSATION WITH SOMALI PLAYWRIGHT IFRAH MANSOUR

With How to Have Fun in a Civil War, Mansour revisits her childhood memories during the 1991 Somali civil war to confront violent history with humor, and provide a voice for the stories of children. This one-act multimedia play reading explores war from the idyllic viewpoint of a seven-year-old Somali girl. The play layers multiple narratives taken from community interviews to tell a captivating story about resilience while pushing audiences to engage in a healing process that is still raw for survivors of the war.” Children Theatre
