In this spare drama by the contemporary activist-playwright Eve Ensler, an American therapist and a human rights worker interview women who have survived the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. Cultural divisions are exposed as the Americans witness unimaginable circumstances when the Bosnian refugees confront their pasts. Necessary Targets examines the lingering effects of violence against women and questions the definitions of family and community.
