ABOUT THE SHOW
‘We used to kill kings. We used to kill millionaires. And now all we do is make threats on the Internet. That’s why I’m offering you the chance to start at war.’
Alejandra and Marcela are planting bombs in the middle of the night. They don’t want violence. They just want to be heard. Prison’s not much of a threat when most of your friends are inside. But José Miguel is from another generation, and he’s committed to change by any means possible.
A darkly comic dive into the absurdity of reality, B examines cross-generational tension in the mobilization of resistance and interrogates the role of violence in revolution. What does it mean to want to take up the struggle, when the struggle has silenced itself to you?
In this Canadian premiere production, Rumble AD Jivesh Parasram directs an all-female cast of talented Vancouver performers: Carmen Aguirre, Maria Escolan, Lissa Neptuno, and Lili Robinson.
A startling, stylish and suspenseful piece… The writing has a dash of Pinter, Chris Morris’ Four Lions and even Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs with its menace, its blend of the comic, grisly and grotesque, and its confused, conflicting deceptions.
