LOS ANGELES—The series of plays to be presented by the well-known theatrical group, Hamazkayin Sos Sargsyan StateTheater of Armenia, previously scheduled for Sept. 30 to Oct. 5, was postponed for unforeseen reasons and will take place February 3 to 8, 2015.
Along with the previously announced plays, an additional one will be presented: Kheranyan’s “Shkhonts Mihran,” whose hero Mihran personifies the survivors of a generation subjected to systematic uprooting from its ancestral lands and genocide. Mihran, while deeply affected by heart-wrenching memories, is able to overcome his feelings of displacement and loss with the determination to survive and prevail as an Armenian. The play was written in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
The Hamazkayin Western Regional Executive Board has formed a Theater Committee who has been working assiduously and spares no effort to produce this theatrical event. It therefore urges you to note the date changes as listed below.
