Now Playing Onstage in Columbus - Week of 4/06/2014 WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT
Available Light Theatre
3/27-4/12/2014
In a play that reads like a grim parody of AVLT's best works, an ensemble of American actors come together to make a play about the little-known, first genocide of the 20th century. Ever wonder what it would be like to be in the rehearsal room when actors are digging ferociously into their psyches to discover a moment of revelation, or arguing heatedly over a character's motivation? Jackie Sibblies Drury's inventive play wedges the audience between the actors and their art. As comedy turns to sudden tragedy, the characters confront the ways we communicate about race across ethnic boundaries in the 21st century.
