Mosaic Theater Company, began its inaugural season with a show called “Unexplored Interior.” It’s about the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda in 1994 and the world’s reluctance to intervene. Playing at the Atlas Performing Arts Center at 1333 H St. NE, over a dozen actors are thrust back to 1994 where playwright Jay Sanders said, “Humanity slipped through the cracks.” This is a riveting yet disturbing play, directed by Derek Goldman, calling into question, “How could this happen with the world watching?” If “Unexplored Interior” is an example of what we have to look forward to by Mosaic Theater Company and its founding artistic director Ari Roth, I can hardly wait. The show plays through November 29. For information and tickets, call 202-399-7993, ext. 2 and check the website at www.MosaicTheater.org.
