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. Enjoy "People of the Book" at Seattle’s Allen Theatre at ACT.
