About Until the Flood
Pulitzer Prize finalist and celebrated performer Dael Orlandersmith (Forever) explores the social uprising in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting of teenager Michael Brown. 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.”

“Orlandersmith gives expression to America’s racial stalemate with lyrical flow. Written with as much empathy as outrage… Until the Flood quietly assures that the struggle lives on.”
