Black Box Theatre (BBT), 420 N. Main St. downtown, continues its 20th season with a production of Eugene Ionesco’s “The Killing Game.” Ionesco (1912-93), who was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature in 1964, wrote the play in 1970, which features “an unnamed city in an unnamed country beset by an unnamed plague,” said Marissa Bond, who is directing the production. “Quarantined from the rest of the world and hemmed in by unknowns, how does the population of the city deal with the horror? Not well. Ionesco’s absurdist play uses gleefully dark humor and an unrelenting examination of human nature combine to keep us unbalanced and uncertain, but laughing through it all.”
