From the playwright…
“Kings” is a play that seems fun. It brings you to a party, it introduces you to its friends. It lets you be wild, intoxicated, in love! It is drinking and card games and gossip and secrets and lost clothing and drama and our oldest deepest secrets. “Kings” lulls you into a false sense of security, and then it pulls you apart.
We are fed the idea that our attackers are strangers in masks on street corners, evil-doers plotting premeditated crimes. But they are more likely our friends, our partners. They are more likely in our homes. They are more likely the people we know, which makes a black and white situation feel…grey. Which makes our friends divided. Which makes our response clouded. Which makes our voices silenced. Which makes consent seem blurry when it isn’t. Which makes our bodies not our own.
“Kings” is not a tragedy. It is a slice of life. It is just a normal party.
