About this show

100 Aprils is a darkly comic look at the generational consequences, and insanity, of history denied. John Saypian is a modern-day Don Quixote. He and his family are second-generation Armenians whose parents escaped the genocide. John believes that a tormentor is pursuing him. Is the enemy a haunted memory from his childhood, or is he real?

Universal in scope, 100 Aprils mines the seeds of hope from a truth that must be told. Elina de Santos is producing this world premiere.

"I felt that I needed to contribute something to honor, and coincide with, the centennial commemoration of the Armenian genocide," says playwright Leslie Ayvazian. "It is a story that all Armenians carry, and tell throughout generations. This particular telling comes from an absurdist world. It lives partially in hallucination and partially in dreams that cannot be silenced."
