Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This groundbreaking anthology is a collection of new plays by American writers of a variety of Middle Eastern backgrounds, from artists born in Egypt and Iran, to Israeli and Palestinian Americans. These plays—written in a diversity of theatrical styles ranging from lyrical drama to satiric comedy—are personal and political, fresh and important. They represent artists negotiating the complexities of Middle Eastern identity in America, while dealing with the ravages of war and violence in their families’ homelands.

Included are:Ten Acrobats in an Amazing Leap of Faith by Yussef el-Guindi

Between Our Lips by Nathalie Handal

Nine Parts of Desire by Heather Raffo

The Black Eyed by Betty Shamieh

Call Me Mehdi by Torange Yeghiazarian
