Massacre (Sing to Your Children)

by José Rivera

Massacre (Sing To Your Children)

A story of love, mythology and violence, Massacre is a horror-thriller with magical realism permeating through every crack! Written by José Rivera, the first Puerto Rican screenwriter to ever be nominated for an Oscar, Massacre is the story of a small New Hampshire town, Granville, which used to be ruled over by an evil, sadistic and power hungry tyrant. 7 people found the courage to organize a reistance and overthrow him. Finally, the day came and like Caesar they each got to stab the tyrant who had been terrorizing their town. It is moments afterward the murder that the play begins. Exploring themes of revolution, anti-fascim, and political violence through the study of these 7 individuals, this is a one setting ensemble show that is as earnest as it is dramatic. Human nature is on trial in the blood soaked events of the play. We learn of these character’s struggles before and after this evil tyrant came to town. As we unpack deep secrets they had hidden from each other, it becomes clear that the moral truth is more horrific than anyone believed.
