Set in a small New Hampshire town where seven friends conspire to murder their mysterious neighbor Joe. On the night of the killing, as they confront the many meanings of their crime and finally relax and laugh and love again ... there's a knock on their door. "Josť Rivera's new drama MASSACRE (SING TO YOUR CHILDREN) has both the visceral thrill of Stephen King and the eerie magic realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The playwright takes a group of everyday people, living in a typical small town, and plops them into a fever dream of hatred, retribution and regeneration ... [a] darkly comic play ..." -Mary Houlihan, Sun-Times (Chicago) "... there's also downright militancy and politically charged passion in Rivera's MASSACRE really is one of those difficult Rorschach Tests-of-a-play whose narrative loopiness, supernatural meanings and political allegory will haunt and confound each audience member in a different way ..." -Fabrizio O Almeida, Newcity

Review:

José Rivera's new drama MASSACRE (SING TO YOUR CHILDREN) has both the visceral thrill of Stephen King and the eerie magic realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The playwright takes a group of everyday people, living in a typical small town, and plops them into a fever dream of hatred, retribution and regeneration. Rivera's darkly comic play... --Mary Houlihan, Sun-Times (Chicago)

...there's also downright militancy and politically charged passion in Rivera's poetry that mesmerizes with its truthfulness and topical urgency.... MASSACRE really is one of those difficult Rorschach Tests-of-a-play whose narrative loopiness, supernatural meanings and political allegory will haunt and confound each audience member in a different way. --Fabrizio O Almeida, Newcity
