I went to see the Can Stage/ Studio 180 co production of The Overwhelming. It is a play about the events leading up to the Rwandan genocide. The play was disturbing. It was also somewhat hard to believe. Apparently I am not the only one to say that. I found the acting good, but the plot was disjointed and pretty unbelievable. The final scene was quite shocking, but also unbelievable. Not a particularly satisfying afternoon of theater, though the notes on the play did clarify the timelone to the genocide for me.
