As ridiculous as some of the characterizations were, and the outlandish lengths the action often took, Mr. Amato still retained the spirit of Shakespeare’s original. I look forward to The Theater Project’s forthcoming production of Much Ado About Nothing, and any other offerings from this exciting and innovative theater company.

About Lysistrata Rape Play

In a not too distant future, American women have decided: enough is enough. Rape has to stop. In fact, they'll give up sex completely in protest. As the enormity of their sacrifice sets in, sh*t starts to get real...deeply, uncomfortably real. A dark, dark, dark comedy.

About The Butcher

In 2004, the butcher and sole proprietor of the Super Halal Market in suburban Springfield, VA ducked into the walk-in freezer to fetch some goat meat for a customer. When he returned moments later, the customer’s severed left hand lay on the floor by the meat saw, and a trail of blood led all the way out of the store. Witnesses said the customer had used the saw to cut off his own hand, yelling again and again that he was “not a terrorist.” He had done it, he screamed, “for Allah.” But what exactly had he done? And why? In the ensuing weeks, the butcher, his wife, a reporter, an investigator and one innocent family try to make sense of this ultimately bewildering (and all too true) event.
