Red Dog Howls play, telling about the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman
Empire in 1915, will be staged in New York from September 4.

The play authored by Alexander Dinelaris tells about a young man who
accidentally comes into terms with the unknown history of his family.

After the death of his father the young man finds a box and reading
the letters kept inside, reveals he is not a Greek but the heir of
Armenians killed during the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire.

According to CNNturk, the performance has provoked the outrage of
the representatives of the Turkish community of the USA.

"This performance is not an art but an attempt of bringing the events
of 1915 on the agenda again. It is propaganda," Ali Cinar, head of
American Federation of Turks said.
