Katurian is a writer of gruesome, unpublished short stories. So, when someone starts killing children in the same ways found in his stories, the police force in the unnamed totalitarian state where he lives have more than a few questions for him. What follows is a terrifying, electrifying and urgent work of theatrical brilliance and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.
Five years ago, Renegade Theater introduced this play to the Northland, while at the same time re-introducing themselves and their new, bold and daring aesthetic to the community that has supported them for over two decades. It was a massive artistic and critical success. The only problem? No one saw it. But now, five years and dozens of groundbreaking, boundary pushing shows later, we want another crack at this one. And we want to give you another chance to see it. Who says that in life there are no second chances?
“Breathtaking, deeply dark but superbly done. Like a kick to the stomach.”
