Drama Groups to Mark Genocide Centennial


LOS ANGELES—In observance of the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, Center Theatre Group, in partnership with the Armenian Dramatic Artists Alliance (ADAA), will present “Staging the Unstageable: The Esthetics of Dramatizing Atrocity” at the Kirk Douglas Theatre on April 28 at 8 p.m.
“Staging the Unstageable” is a reading of excerpts from plays that dramatize in different ways the Armenian Genocide, which was the systematic extermination (beginning in April 1915) by the Ottoman Empire of its minority Armenian subjects.
The performance will be followed by a panel discussion with notable guests from the Armenian community and with Los Angeles theatre artists who have grappled with the responsibilities of bringing historical tragedies to the stage.
