NOW EXTENDED!!! September 21 - November 4, 2012
Katori Hall’s play — in its American premiere — is set 15 years after the Rwandan genocide. We meet a group of teenagers whose fathers are being released from prison after serving time for the mass killings of their Tutsi neighbors. How will these innocents — young people who don’t even remember their fathers — live with this brutal legacy? Can they go beyond it, or will they be shaped by their tragic heritage? Castillo’s production of Children of Killers, directed by Emily Mendelsohn, comes on the heels of Katori Hall’s Broadway triumph last season, with her Olivier-Award-winning play The Mountaintop.
