Until the Flood is the latest riveting theatrical event from acclaimed writer and performer Dael Orlandersmith.
Based on extensive interviews following the 2014 shooting of black teenager Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson, this tour–de–force show gives voice to a community haunted by injustice and a country yearning for change.
Awarded a Critic’s Pick by The New York Times and hailed as ‘a must see show that will have a profound effect on everyone who views it’ by Broadway World, Until The Flood explores the dark forces of American history, race and politics that exploded in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri and sent shock waves across the nation. Pulitzer Prize nominee Dael Orlandersmith [Yellowman, Forever, The Gimmick] brings the voices and emotions of the people who lived through these raw events to the stage.
Don't miss Dael Orlandersmith's First Thought Talk, Theatre and the Personal, on Sunday 28 July at 10am.
