An event every week that begins at 8:30pm on Saturday, repeating until July 14, 2018
Winner of the 2017 Ovation Award for “Best Season,” and two time recipient of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle “Polly Warfield Award for an Excellent Season in a Small to Mid-Size Theatre,” Rogue Machine opens a stunning new play on June 9th.
100 APRILS is a darkly comic look at the generational consequences, and insanity, of history denied. John Saypian is a modern-day Don Quixote. He and his family are second generation Armenians whose parents escaped the Genocide. John believes that a tormentor is pursuing him. Is the enemy a haunted memory from his childhood or is he real?
Universal in scope, 100 Aprils mines the seeds of hope from a truth that must be told. Elina de Santos is producing this world premiere.
“I felt that I needed to contribute something to honor, and coincide with, the centennial commemoration of the Armenian genocide,” says playwright Leslie Ayvazian. “It is a story that all Armenians carry, and tell throughout generations. This particular telling comes from an absurdist world. It lives partially in hallucination and partially in dreams that cannot be silenced.”
100 APRILS opens on Saturday, June 9th at 8:30pm and runs Saturdays and Mondays at 8:30pm, Sundays at 3:00pm through July 16, 2018 (no performances on Monday, June 25th). Pay-What–You-Can on Monday, June 11th ($5 minimum starts 7pm at box office only). Rogue Machine is located in The Met, 1089 N Oxford Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90029. Tickets are $40.
