The Killing Game
This year, the New School of Northern Virginia is performing the Killing Game, a wildly dark comedy about the spread of a nasty illness. Written by Eugène Ionesco in 1970, Killing Game is an ensemble piece that delves into the effect fear and impending death have on people. The plague takes a toll on everyone, hitting both the rich and the poor, infecting even the ones that believe they are safe without a doubt. With a great sense of grim humor, this production induces a healthy dose of laughter. Characters change with each scene; all succumb to paranoia, uncertain of where this mysterious illness will strike next. The question of whether everyone dies by the end or not keeps the audience in suspense.
-- Ilta Schulzrinne, student critic for The New School of Northern Virginia Cappies program
