Scorched

Saturday, June 1, 2019 2:30pm & 7:30pm

MRU Nickle Theatre 
Artio’s choral theatre artists present "Scorched". In spite of the passage of time and the lessons throughout history, the cycle of power and oppression still dominates and consumes our lives. The desire of one person or group to have power over another creates a cycle of hopelessness that either kills or drives people to pursue a better life for them and their children. Even in this new millennium Slavery still exists. Refugees are rejected and pushed away, imprisoned, and derided. Where is the wisdom of time? Where is the enlightenment of humanity?
Like an all-consuming fire, prejudice, racism, tyranny, and greed dominate the human condition while compassion and enlightenment like water surges forward offering a refreshing break from the turmoil - only to evaporate amid the heat of hatred's rage.

Artio’s production of Scorched explores the troubling reality we find ourselves in today, having ignored the lessons of the past, left to long for a brighter future that may never arrive.
