From a press release:

Two American women in war-torn Bosnia — one, a New York City psychiatrist, and the other, a journalist who routinely embeds herself in war and trauma — attempt to help a group of female refugees during the immediate aftermath of the Yugoslavian Civil War. Based on playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with Bosnian women, this psychological drama protests war and violence against women. Haunting, empowering and unflinching, Necessary Targets explores the passion, pain, humor, and the humanity alive within war’s most undeserving victims.

When: Feb. 8, 7:30 p.m., showtimes continue through Feb. 26

Where:
 Tornabene Theatre on the UA campus
