Arab American Drama, Film and Performance

A Critical Study, 1908 to the Present


Beginning with the early Arab-American playwright, poet and novelist Kahlil Gibran and concluding with contemporary playwright Yussef El Guindi, this book provides an historical overview and critical analysis of the plays, films and performances of self-identified Arab Americans. Arab-American identity, self-representation and the notion of resistance literature in these works are addressed. Playwrights, performers and filmmakers covered include Ameen Fares Rihani, Danny Thomas, Heather Raffo, Ahmed Ahmed, Mona Mansour and Cherien Dabis. These artists, traditionally underrepresented in entertainment, publishing and academia, have created works that exemplify the burgeoning Arab-American arts movement. By addressing cinema, stand-up comedy and solo performance, the author introduces audiences to contemporary genres that are currently shaping Arab American culture in the U.S.
