It’s 1978 and protests are breaking out all across Iran, encroaching on this suburb where a tight-knit circle of girlfriends plans weddings, trades dirty jokes, and tries to hang onto a sense of normalcy. But as the revolution escalates, each woman is forced to join the wave of emigration or face an equally uncertain future at home. With breathtaking humanity and cutting wit, Wish You Were Herechronicles a decade of life during war, as best friends forever become friends long lost, scattered and searching for home.

Wish You Were Here is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
