When a group of actors gather to give a presentation on a distant genocide, they realize that summaries are not enough. In their attempt to delve into history they struggle with stereotype, fear, and their own personal histories – uncovering the potential for brutality in all of us.
The production will be directed by Noah Diaz and M. Michele Phillips. The production opens August 21 and runs through September 14, 2014. Tickets go on sale in August!
