One Year Lease ensemble theater company and award-winning Australian playwright Daniel Keene have collaborated to create the theater event The Killing Room.
Inspired by the horrific myth of Thyestes, this darkly comic and poignant play seeks to explore what the human cycle of greed and violence might look like in its last iteration - at the very end of time.
In The Killing Room, we meet decrepit twin brothers, whose greed is so insatiable and whose capacity for brutality is so great, they have destroyed an entire civilization. Sound bleak? It is. But it is also darkly comic, offering a murderous look at the effects of greed and corruption.
