    Two government agents wreak havoc on the life of obliging Khaled, seemingly a luckless Arab American. The importance of the play is aided and abetted by the Federal Patriot Act—our government can be the agent for terrorism, and not its sorry victim. The play won the 2004 Northwest Playwrights’ Competition held by Theater Schmeater, LA. Weekly’s Excellence in Playwriting Award for 2006, was nominated for the 2006 American Theater Critics Association’s Steinberg/New Play Award, and was voted Best New Play of 2005 by the Seattle Times.
