Yussef El Guindi finalist for $25,000 prize

The Seattle playwright, author of “Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World,” is among six finalists for the Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award, which recognizes “playwrights for the best scripts that premiered professionally outside New York City during 2011.” First prize is the aforementioned $25,000; runners-up get $7,500 each. The winners will be announced March 31 at the Humana Festival of New American Plays in Kentucky. (A news release also announces that “commemorative plaques” will be awarded, but we at ArtsPage HQ are willing to bet the the cash is much handier at the grocery store.)
