Shishir Kurup is writer and director. "Shishir Kurup has created an intense and thought-provoking play exploring the nature of pain in relation to justice," said artistic director Michael John Garces. "Is there any objective relationship between suffering and the good and bad we do?" "On Caring for the Beast" will run until Feb. 28. Facilitated talkbacks will occur after all Thursday night shows "to encourage discussion with the audience so they may collectively process the issues raised in the play."
