Write Up:
Seven MOC members braved some rough downtown traffic to meet at Center Stage. We arrived just in the nick of time to qualify for a special 50% discount on our ticket prices. As a result, we were able to snag some of the best seats in the house at a very affordable price. After buying our tickets, we took the elevator to the sixth floor for a very cool pre-show happy hour. We savored the complimentary hors d'oeuvres, sampled a bit of wine, and enjoyed some lively conversation.

The main event, the political drama Death and The Maiden, began at 8:00pm. Without giving away the plot, I will say it was a riveting and thought-provoking performance, and the ending kept some of us guessing. It also contained some compelling and relevant themes about revenge, justice, and the deep wounds that exist when a society condones and/or turns a blind eye to torture and inhumanity. After the conclusion, we gave a lengthy and well-deserved applause. Bravo!
