The Alta Arts presents Massacre: Sing to Your Children
It will be a wild, bloody, political-poetical ride when The Alta Arts presents the production of Massacre: Sing to Your Children, a play by Oscar-nominated, Puerto-Rican born American playwright José Rivera, best known for his screenplay The Motorcycle Diaries about Che Guevara.
This supernatural, moral and perhaps religious allegory may be set in small-town New Hampshire, but audiences will question whether they’ve landed smack down in a dictator-riven Central American state. Although the playwright’s Latin American power themes are evident, the complex dynamics of perception and fear will be frighteningly familiar to any audience.
The play follows eight “average” previously non-violent folks in the small town of Granville who have just committed a gruesome act.
