Conflict photographer Mia wakes up in the Istanbul apartment of Derya, her on-again, off-again girlfriend, after being found unconscious at the scene of a massacre she was photographing. When Mia’s well-meaning Californian mother arrives, we discover some of the dynamics between all three women, and how they navigate the difficulties of the worlds they encounter.

“Mansour’s play provides a face for those brave photojournalists who risk their lives everyday using their cameras to tell dangerous, true stories set in exotic locales.” — Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review
“Unseen was riveting…it looks at the morality of Mia’s job, the privilege of living in America, and the relativity of struggle.” — Marielle Shaw, Third Coast Review
