“The Voices of Afghanistan” project was created to amplify Afghan stories. “We believe these stories need to be heard and we are now, more than ever, prepared to listen,” says LA Writers Center.

According to LA Writers Center: “The Voices of Afghanistan” is a project that we felt was necessary and inevitable due to the unrest in Afghanistan. Our writers are putting together a verbatim theatre piece. We are interviewing Afghan and Afghan-American citizens, Afghan war veterans, and artists about the situation over there and how it has affected their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

Also, “The Voices of Afghanistan” monologues will be read by Afghan and Afghan-American actors, including Leena Alam, Buck Hujabre, and Mueen Jahan.  American actors include Donna Simone Johnson, Abdul-Khaliq Murtadha, Maria Nicolacakis and Jaymes Polling.
