This sexy, “very now” world-premiere comedy by Seattle playwright Yussef El Guindi is full of unabashed sweetness and goofy charm, and reminds us that we are all “immigrants” with far more connecting than separating us._ Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World_ came directly out of development at 2010’s Icicle Creek Theatre Festival, and their collaboration with ACT Theatre.
“Pilgrims explores the emotional havoc that attends those who leave one country to try and make a home in another country…the baggage that one unavoidably lugs around in one’s travels, as well as the stuff you’re forced to leave behind. And how the absence of those things left behind often accrues an emotional weight of its own. A weird number is done on your psyche when you find the familiar touchstones of your home country absent from your daily life. That is, of course, both thrilling and exciting, as well as overwhelming, and even terrifying at times,” said El Guindi. “Sometimes, an emotional free-fall takes place, where nothing familiar remains for you to hold onto in times of crises. Truly, one becomes a stranger in a strange land; and one simply can’t create memories and comfort zones fast enough to break this fall.”
