‘Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat’ at The Leeward Theatre
Leeward Theatre Alternate Space: Leeward Community College, room AM-101
May 4 - 13, 2017
All shows at 8pm
Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat closes the 42nd Season here at The Leeward Theatre!
Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat is an epic cycle of 17 short plays examining the personal and political effect of war on modern life. The plays offer a biting critique of the way civilians in Western society display intense empathy to the plight of war victims around the world while simultaneously sacrificing others’ well-being in the name of maintaining their own lifestyles. Ravenhill stages the intensity of individual pain against a vast narrative of conflict as a child talks to a headless man, a couple talk about their garden bench, and a soldier demands love from a woman whose country he has liberated. Each new play is a fragment of suffering, and a fierce, sardonic attack on the war on terror. The scenes are lightly connected, but can be performed in any combination or order. Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat was first produced as Ravenhill for Breakfast in 2007 at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh.
