"We are taking a proactive stance toward assuring that playwrights of Middle Eastern backgrounds receive the nurturing and support they so deserve.“
-Jamil Khoury, Silk Road’s Founding Artistic Director"It is critical in ensuring that Middle Eastern-American playwrights continue to be discovered, nurtured, and produced. Not only because their work is worthy of broader audiences, but more importantly because American audiences can no longer afford not to see this work."
