October 17 – November 17, 2012

After a schoolyard altercation between two 11-year-old boys, the parents meet for a civilized discussion of the incident – “practice the art of co-existence” rather than “slaughter each other with insurance claims.”   Eventually, though, polite social veneer is stripped away and wild chaos erupts.  

AstonRep continues their recent tradition of bringing fresh life to acclaimed newer works and giving them  an intimate and honest treatment.
