Seattle playwright Yussef El Guindi is one of six finalists for the prestigious Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Awards, honoring scripts that debuted outside New York City during 2011. He has been recognized for his work, "Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World," which received its world premiere in 2011 at ACT Theatre after being developed at the Icicle Creek Theater Festival.

The annual top prize in the contest, which is funded by the Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, is $25,000. Two runners-up will receive $7,500 each. The other 2012 finalists are plays by Sharr White, A. Rey Pamatmat, Ken LeZebnik, Caitlin Montanye Parrish and Quiara Alegria Hudes.

Judges for the Steinberg/ATCA awards are 12 drama critics from across the United States, including Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson. The prizes will be announced on March 31, at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, during the Humana Festival of New American Plays.
