The latest work by award winning playwright, performer and Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith focuses on the social unrest following the fatal police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. The playwright crafted a one-act drama that focuses on eight composite characters from the St. Louis region, examining the issues of race and social unrest from a variety of perspectives. Orlandersmith’s drama is even-keeled and balanced in its approach to the nation’s festering problem of race relations that goes back 400 years. This one-woman show is certain to generate conversations about who we’ve been, who we are and who we will become.
Several performances of Until The Flood will include audience engagement events before or after the show which will feature community responders and a facilitated discussion. These events are free and will enrich the experience of this production, and keep the much-needed conversation about race going. Click here for details on each engagement event. Special note: Pastor Carey G. Anderson of First AME Church and Rabbi Daniel Weiner of Temple De Hirsch Sinai will be part of the post-show dialogue on Sunday, June 10; and the Rev. Dr. Linda M. Smith will be part of the post-show dialogue on Thursday, June 21.
