About this show

In his new dramatic play, A Crooked Man, Richard Kalinoski, playwright of the acclaimed Beast on the Moon, brings to the stage the fictional story of Armenian Genocide survivor Hagop Hagopian. A revered elder of the Armenian community, Hagopian, had in his past tracked down and executed the young Turkish leader, Mehmet Pasha, one of the men responsible for master-minding the Armenian Genocide of 1915. Now Hagopian must reveal the hidden truth behind his past actions to his half-Armenian grandson Alex, a young American who has been brought up in a world of moral absolutes where murder is wrong no matter what the circumstances, even when it's carried out in the name of 1.5 million slaughtered Armenians. What happens when cultures and generations collide? When a haunting memory from the past forces Hagopian to mysteriously climb up to the top of his roof while holding a loaded gun? When the truth about the past is so fearsome and immoral to an 88 year-old political hero that he desperately needs to pass it on to the next generation before he disappears forever?
