Salaam. Peace: An Anthology of Middle Eastern-American Drama

Edited by Holly Hill and Dina Amin

Paperback £19.99

A groundbreaking anthology containing 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 both 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.
