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

Edited by Holly Hill and Dina Amin

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.
