Inspired by real historical events in Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian enclave in Azerbaijan, where over 30,000 people were killed between 1988-1994, “Black Garden” is a theatrical collage that portrays the harrowing landscape of an Armenian woman’s trauma. She is haunted by the memories of a lost lover; two gluttonous buffoons and self-serving leaders contrive to abuse their countries for their own personal power; a man is imprisoned and interrogated for unknown crimes; and several diaspora Armenians are simply trying to find their identities and a compatible person to date. Playwright Gordon Penn mixes violence, cynicism and humour in a wild ride staged by Arthur Markaryan.
