People of the Book

Theatre Downtown

In this world premiere play by ACT 2018 Core Member Yussef El Guindi, lust, jealousy, and post-traumatic stress bring things between old friends to a boil. Jason is a veteran of the Iraq War who returns home to literary glory after writing an international best-seller, a heroic account of his wartime experience. His celebrity is underscored by his marriage to Madeeha, an Iraqi woman he saved in a house-to-house raid. When he reunites with old friends, Amir and Lynn, questions start to emerge about the veracity of the book and its particular patriotic American gaze.
