Last Thursday Niel, my mom and I went to see the play Beast On The Moon. It is about a young couple, both survivors of the Armenian Genocide who are trying to deal with what they had endured as well as getting used to one another. The husband Aram, who lost his parents and siblings is so intent on getting back that family structure as he knew it, sends away for Seta who is only 15 at the time of their marriage. Seta who is just so happy to be alive, has to grow up very fast in their relationship. By dealing with Aram's pain as well as her own. It was a very emotional story and acted out very well. I hope if you're in the NYC area you'll get the opportunity to see it. Please read Niel's thoughts of the play in his May 27 post.
