convergence-continuum opens the Ohio premiere of MASSACRE (SING TO YOUR CHILDREN) by JOSÉ RIVERA Friday, May 19 – Saturday, June 10!
After enduring five years of psychological and physical terror, seven citizens of a small New Hampshire town stage a revolt and murder the man who has destroyed them – or do they? Magic realism & pulp-horror-movie events collide when the seven friends conspire to brutally rid their small town of its viciously oppressive mayor. MASSACRE is a powerful depiction of the use of violence as a response to living under a repressive plutocratic regime, and of our own role in perpetuating the tyranny.
MASSACRE is directed by convergence-continuum’s Artistic Director, Clyde Simon, and features actors Wesley Allen, Lucy Bredeson-Smith, Dennis Burby, Jamal Davidson, Beau Reinker, Kelsey Rubenking, Brian Westerley and Hillary Wheelock. This is the fourth José Rivera play presented by convergence-continuum, having produced in past seasons EACH DAY DIES WITH SLEEP, REFERENCES TO SALVADOR DALI MAKE ME HOT and BRAINPEOPLE.
MASSACRE Fri, May 19 and runs Thurs-Sat at 8 pm through June 10 at convergence-continuum’s Liminis Theater, 2438 Scranton Rd, Cleveland in the historic Tremont neighborhood.
Convergence-continuum sells non-alcoholic beverages but invites you to bring your own [insert preferred libation here] if you wish.
