Event Information

WINNER OF THE 2017 WOODWARD INTERNATIONAL PLAYWRITING PRIZE. WORLD PREMIERE OF A FRIGHTENINGLY TIMELY PLAY. BOSNIA, 1990s: A charismatic leader excites his followers with myths and fantasies of their past greatness, and promises that they will be great again when they take their country back. They must rid themselves of the Muslims who, he avers with no evidence, are establishing an Islamic republic, and who just don't belong in the land. This rhetoric leads to the worse genocide since the Nazi-perpetrated slaughter. Trina Davies' play, by turns searing and morbidly funny, tells how a handful of Bosnians, victims and perpetrators alike, try to mend their lives in the aftermath of the genocide and associated atrocities. What happens when two Bosnians, taking refuge years later in Canada, spot a concentration camp guard and torturer in the line at Home Depot? What happens when a Muslim judge, having spent terrible years in a concentration camp, makes her weary way home to discover that one of her former secretaries is now living in her apartment? How would you like to have tea served to you on your own grandmother’s tea set by an intruder who has, in your forced absence, moved into your home? The play invites us to ponder whether it is possible to mend broken cups, broken bridges, and broken lives. The purpose of “Cultural Stages: The Woodward International Drama and Dance Initiative” is to promote a deeper understanding of international cultures through visiting playwrights and a competition for plays addressing relevant themes, resulting in a full production of the play at UNH. The project is funded by Ellis Woodward, UNH Class of '74. In the unlikely event that a performance is cancelled due to inclement weather, tickets to the cancelled performance will be honored at a special performance on Oct. 8 at 7pm.

PRICE: General Public: $16 UNH ID/Senior/Group 15+: $14 Youth (17 and under): $8
