God Favors the Predator, 2004

ABOUT

God Favors the Predator (2004) is an expansion of an earlier work, Nocturne in 1200 Seconds exploring the dark side of human nature in modern times. It was originally commissioned by Virginia Tech and used Virginia Tech acting students in the cast. God Favors the Predator marked the second world premiere that Ping Chong and Michael Rohd created in collaboration with Virginia Tech after Truth & Beauty. God Favors the Predator was re-commissioned in 2006 by Theatre Lanterne in Rotterdam, Netherlands with a new 2nd act, which was adapted from a broadcast of the siege of Sarajevo by a local television station.
