We would like to acknowledge the theater companies, boards of directors, donors, producers, directors, actors, designers, technicians, stage crews, photographers, dramaturgs, public relations and office staff, and volunteers of the theaters who have produced, staged, documented, and promoted Yussef El Guindi's plays. Without all of your combined efforts, works like these would not have been shared with audiences nationwide. We would also like to acknowledge the publishers who print plays like these, providing them for use in classrooms, to be read in libraries, and to staged in educational and regional theaters.
Many thanks to Camilla Erskine, Lucy Brown, and Anna Brewer for their editorial wisdom regarding this project and to everyone at Methuen Drama who assisted in making this selected works a reality. Thanks also to Corey Pond and Brent Ervin-Eickhoff of Silk Road Rising, Evren Odcikin of Golden Thread Productions, Amy Gentry of ACT Theatre, Claudie Jean Fisher of Portland Center Stage, Alison Ehrenreich of The Wilma Theater, and Nicole A. Lane of Artists Repertory Theatre for providing the production photographs included in this volume.
Lastly, we thank our families who have supported our artistic efforts through the best and worst times. You are our truest inspiration.
