Writing out denial - In conversation with Canadian playwright Rahul Varma

Shaké Sarkhanian
One month has gone by since the production of State of Denial, written by Rahul Varma, at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. The central plot of the play is propelled by Odette, a Rwandan-born Canadian filmmaker, who travels to modern day Turkey to collect stories about the Armenian genocide for her documentary. In Turkey, she meets Sahana, an old Muslim woman who reveals a secret to Odette, one that unravels the multilayered denial of genocide. The revelation takes the audience to present day Canada to meet Isma, a young Turkish girl who discovers a previously unknown tie to the genocide’s violent past. The Daily sat down with Varma to talk about about how he developed the play and its message. more
