A compelling look at how we perceive violence and atrocity in our own lives, Harold Pinter's 1996 work Ashes to Ashes has never been more relevant than it is today. This daring drama examines how our perceptions and understanding of the violence in the world effect our own lives.
Staring Muriel J. Bonertz and Mic Weinblatt, and directed by Josh Cragun, the play centers around a middle-aged couple, Rebecca (played by Bonertz) and Devlin (Weinblatt), and Rebecca's recollections of an abusive ex-lover. Spurred on by Devlin's need for a single truth, Rebecca discovers deeper perceptions about violence and how it effects the world.
A concise and brilliant work from a man who has been hailed as one of the greatest living playwrights, Ashes to Ashes has been hailed as a triumph of power, perception, and subtlety.
