Pourush – Student Review

“… more than equality, the play talks about how … love survives when it is free and not when caged under borrowed concepts of beauty.”

Pourush – Audience Review

“Nothing you have done in the past can compare with the performance on Saturday at O’Shaughnessy. It was a work of art—passionate, sculptural, poetic, colorful and performed beautifully!”
