Abstract

This paper explores the potential of literature, particularly plays, in fostering healing and reconciliation in post-war Iraqi society and with occupying forces. Through a comprehensive analysis of the role of plays in addressing conflict, crafting characters, and encouraging communal engagement, the paper delves into the transformative power of drama as a medium for navigating the complexities of post-conflict dynamics. The examination of diverse character representation, symbolism, allegory, and metaphor within live performances underscores the profound impact of shared experiences and the cultivation of empathy. Drawing from a range of plays as references, the paper highlights the significance of literature as a tool for fostering understanding, challenging assumptions, and facilitating dialogue in the journey towards post-war healing and reconciliation.
