SCM Medical Missions

People of the Book

We’re excited to announce that Rita Zawaideh, of SCM Medical Missions will be part of a Post-Show Dialogue following the evening performance of People of the Book on Sept 15.

About the play:

In this world premiere play by ACT 2018 Core Member, Yussef El Guindi, Jason returns from war to literary glory after writing an international best-seller, but his celebrity is underscored by his marriage to Madeeha, an Iraqi woman he saved. When he reunites with old friends, Amir and Lynn, questions emerge about the veracity of the book and its particular patriotic American gaze. Lust, jealousy, and personal politics bring things between old friends to a boiling point and we are asked “what is the expense of lies – personally and as a country?”

Also joining the after-show discussion is Jeb Wyman, of Antioch University Seattle. Hope to see you there!
