"Constantinople" is the latest world premiere by Vista Players, a "boundlessly talented" ensemble which "set the standard by which others were judged." This fast-paced, 90-minute play by Elly Award-winning playwright Aram Kouyoumdjian unfolds during the aftermath of World War I and focuses on the city's Armenian minority in the post-Genocide era, at a time of political intrigue, military struggle, and a growing feminist movement.
This is the setting in which Vehanoush, the editor of a feminist journal, and Roupen, a guerrilla fighter, coordinate missions for the recovery of women and children abducted during the Genocide, as well as border crossings into Armenia to transport supplies and weaponry. Their idealism is tested, however, when the political situation around them takes a darker turn, Roupen's missions become endangered, and Vehanoush's core beliefs are challenged both by those who fund her clandestine activities and the "new girls" of the era who find her principles compromised.
Vista Players veterans Jade Hykush and Robert Walters are joined by Travis Laughlin, Eva Abramian, Jonathan Fishman, Kristin Mothersbaugh, and Luc Rosenthal in the powerhouse cast. "Constantinople" also features the creative talents of Alan Tollefson (Scenic Design), Henrik Mansourian (Lighting Design), and Allison Dillard (Costume Design), fresh off an Ovation Award win. Ara Dabandjian is the production's original music composer.
