Blondie of Arabia at Culture Project
This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.
Two weeks before Christmas and moments before the Arab Spring, Monica Hunken flew into the heart of the Persian Gulf to work a catering job at a royal wedding party and ended up biking across three countries in the Middle East. Alone. This play chronicles the true story of her desert odyssey. Watch the broke, blonde American swerve her bicycle through close encounters with military capture, sex tourism, Gulf royalty, three wedding parties and near death. As Monica perseveres in her adventure as a parade of one, defeating trouble at every turn, indulging her super-hero fetishism, she discovers her biggest adversary might be herself. A production of Culture Project's Women Center Stage.
