'Mimi's Suitcase' is a multilingual, auto-biographical, award-winning one-woman play written and performed by Ana Bayat. It explores identity and the consequences of displacement as it follows Iranian teen Mimi's return to her war-torn homeland after a happy childhood in Barcelona.
This involuntary uprooting awakens questions about identity, language, culture and homeland in this hilarious and heart-warming universal coming-of-age journey of resilience, humanity and, above all, hope. "Mimi's Suitcase" is performed in English, Spanish and Persian with English surtitles.
