Photo Coverage: Working Artists Theatre Project's GREGORIAN Celebrates Opening Night
Working Artists Theatre Project presents GREGORIAN, a new play by Matthew Greene, running through September 2nd at Walker Space (46 Walker Street, between Broadway and Church). BroadwayWorld brings you photos from opening night below!
Gregorian portrays one family's journey through the bloodiest century in human history as four generations discover the gravity of a name passed from father to son. The play explores the cyclical effects of genocide on humanity, the consequences of denial, and the essential place these stories hold in our existence. Beginning with the Gregorian family's own tragic roots in the Armenian Genocide, through the rise of the Nazi Party, across the killing fields of Cambodia, and the continuing crisis in Africa, they do all they can to hold on to heritage, history, and hope.
