Necessary Targets, presented by UA’s Arizona Repertory Theatre opens tonight. The play is directed by Kevin Black and written by feminist author Eve Ensler, known for her play The Vagina Monologues.

Zlata (Michelle Luz) remembers a better Bosnia before the Yugoslavian Civil War and JS (Georgia Harrison) listens with empathy during a quiet moment in the night.

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
