“Kill Move Paradise”
February 20, 2020 - March 8, 2020$40
Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College, continues its 27th season with the regional premiere of “Kill Move Paradise,” by James Ijames.
“Kill Move Paradise” takes the Elysium of Greek antiquity and flips the script. Set in a cosmic waiting room in the afterlife prepared for its newly deceased inhabitants, we follow Isa, Daz, Grif and Tiny as they try to make sense of the world they have been untimely ripped from. Inspired by ever growing list of slain unarmed black men and women, “Kill Move Paradise” is an expressionistic buzz saw through the contemporary myth that “all lives matter” and a portrait of the slain, not as degenerates who deserved death but as heroes who demand that we see them for the splendid beings they are.
There will be post-show discussions on February 23, 28, and March 6. Rep Stage will also hold a pre-show lecture prior to the 2 p.m. performance on March 7.
Tickets are $40 for general admission, $35 for seniors and the military, and $15 for students with a current ID. Thursdays are $15 performances. For tickets and additional information, visit www.repstage.org or call the box office at 443-518-1500.
