Abstract

In this research, the themes of violence and injustice in Heather Raffo’s 9 Parts of Desire and Edward Bond’s Saved are analyzed and contrasted. The research uses a secondary qualitative technique and performs a thorough analysis of relevant scholarly books, journals, and dissertations. The study highlights the plays’ intricate and nuanced depictions of violence and injustice, taking on many physical, emotional, and structural aspects. The characters are profoundly impacted by violence and injustice, which has an impact on their identities, behavior, and responses. Because it dispels widespread misunderstandings about the Middle East and draws attention to the region’s pervasive culture of violence and injustice against women, the story’s representation of women is essential. The research underlines the function of theater in advancing social justice and tackling challenging sociopolitical issues. By contrasting and analyzing how violence and injustice are portrayed in the plays, the research brings attention to the role that gender, class, and culture have in shaping our perceptions of violence and injustice. A wide variety of academic disciplines, including but not limited to theater studies, cultural studies, gender studies, and postcolonial studies, are critically considered in the research. The study underlines the need to confront the unfair and violent cultures in conflict-affected areas by creating a forum for critical discussion and social transformation.
