INSURRECTION: HOLDING HISTORY by Robert O'Hara
"INSURRECTION: HOLDING HISTORY is a wild, thrilling ride down one of history's darkest, scariest corridors. Robert O'Hara employs a language of wicked wit, of deliberate and immensely provocative outrageousness to speak to a vast, bloody, unapproachable outrage. He shatters the funereal hush that usually surrounds the representation of atrocity and holocaust, in the process waking his audience up. He knocks us out of the respectful, repetition-dulled stupor with which we are accustomed to contemplate slavery, eschewing and, even better, savaging all clichés. Through comedy, poetry and pure chutzpah, he teaches us all over again how to be truly frightened and appalled. This is a gorgeous, fresh and vital play from a very exciting playwright." —Tony Kushner. [5 men, 4 women]
