Found is a play about a young girl named Lucine and her experience through the Armenian Genocide. Lucine, watching in a state of frozen panic from her bedroom door, witnesses her parents being killed at the hands of the Turks. While this is happening, her younger brother Raffi runs out of the house and is chased by the Turkish soldiers. This gives Lucine time to escape. Although Lucine knows that her parents were killed, she still has hope that her brother is alive somewhere, and she uses the next ten years of her life to search for him.

About the author (2014)

Anoush Baghdassarian was a senior in high school—age 17—when she wrote this play from late October 2012-January 2013. Since the sixth grade she has always felt it her obligation to inform people of her family’s history. She had learned of this genocide as “the forgotten genocide” and made it her goal to help change that. She believed that through learning about the past, we could prevent history from repeating itself and this sparked her desire to act upon her beliefs. Anoush Baghdassarian attends Claremont Mckenna College and is planning to dual major with literature and psychology, with a minor in human rights. She is from Great Neck, New York and is the oldest of four--Anoush (18), Sophie (17), Aram (14), and Antranig (8). Anoush's mother was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and her father in Bayside, New York, yet both of them are Armenian. Growing up, Anoush would be asked, like every other child, what nationality she is. She knew her grandfather was born in Egypt, her grandmother in Greece, and her mother in South America, so she would say, "Egyptian and Greek and Uruguayan and Armenian." When people would ask her how she was so eclectic, she would always resort to the explanation of the Armenia Genocide--"Well, after the Genocide my family escaped to all these different places and started new lives there, so technically, I am fully Armenian." This explanation became so ingrained in who she is that she began to identify with being Armenian more than anything else.
