By Yussef El-Guindi, Directed by Jack Young

Two British professors have left their homeland for a war-zone. They are there on a mission of peace, but peace is hard to find when you’re chained to a radiator.

Yussef El-Guindi, (Back of the Throat, Jihad Jones and The Kalashnikov Babes), one of California’s most esteemed playwrights, presents a powerful telling of human behavior at its basest. HOSTAGES explores the intricacies of human nature when it is deprived of personal contact and torn from the pleasantries of every day life.

Award-winning director Jack Young; currently heading the University of Houston’s graduate program and former artistic director of both the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival and The Warehouse Theatre leads Miscreant Theatre founder-actors, Jacob Knoll (The Creditors) and Jeff Barry (Creditors and Ivanov) in the telling of this explosive and timely play.
