Event Description

Pulitzer Prize-finalist Dael Orlandersmith’s Until The Flood was commissioned by the St. Louis Repertory Theatre and inspired by the 2014 shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown by a white police officer.

Pulling from her extensive interviews with Missouri residents, Orlandersmith crafts a stunning theatrical experience that must be seen. The Chicago Tribune called it “palpably compassionate” and raved that it “achieves a great beauty by bringing us together rather than driving us apart.”The play is a composite of a variety of voices, from angry teenagers to reflective elders, all struggling to come to terms with the issue of race on its most personal level – their own “.

Written with as much empathy as outrage the characters Dael Olandersmith creates in this docu-drama are composites of the citizens she interviewed. Not simply commentators on the shooting, but vivid story tellers about their own lives, and by extension, about society that has shaped their beliefs
