Synopsis: "Yusuf arrives unexpectedly at the Jacobs’ home and challenges the family to question their assumptions, recognize their biases, and combine their divergent perspectives to work out their opposing views about offering safe haven to a refugee whose ethnicity is in doubt. Reversals of time, people, table settings, and even the dining room table itself, result in a transformative experience, filled with twists and turns and constant surprises that nurture respect and understanding, reveal common ground, and inspire the creation of a better world for all."

Social issues addressed: right/left politics, racial issues, religious issues, social responsibility, humanitarianism.


DG Footlights™ is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading.


Attendance is always free and open to all.
