Scenic Routes, a new play by Joseph Guindi, will be presented as a staged reading Feb. 23 at 7 PM at CAP 21 in NY. The director is Michelle Macau.
Scenic Routes examines the relationship of a a young couple -- he's from the Middle East and she's from the U.S. -- and the "benign" cultural chasms that present obstacles to them.
