Prepare yourself for a wild, bloody, political-poetical ride when The Alta Arts launches the premier Texas production of Massacre: Sing to Your Children, a play by Oscar-nominated, Puerto-Rican 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 you’ll question whether you’ve landed smack down in a dictator-riven 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. Directed by Texas Native, Edgar Guajardo
Seven performances running from June 24th through July 3rd, 2022.
