Witness the regional premiere of an explosive play by Finland’s Sofi Oksanen, a global rising star. Purge is a breathtaking and suspenseful story of two women dogged by their own shameful pasts – and the dark, unspoken history that binds them. Purge is both moving and uplifting. Oksanen adapted this powerful play into an acclaimed, best-selling novel, which is now translated into 38 languages, and set to be a feature film in 2012. Directed by Robert McNamara.

Purge vibrates with suspense”
– Hufvudstadsbladet (Finland)

Experience passion, betrayal, violence, and finally, redemption.

Official Run: June 9 – July 3, Thur – Sat 8pm & Sun 3pm. Presented by SCENA, Washington’s International Theatre.
