Recently hailed as a New York Times “Critics Pick” in its off-Broadway premiere, Until the Flood, Goodman Theatre
Artistic Associate and Alice Center Resident Artist
Dael Orlandersmith’s one-woman show, makes its Chicago debut at Goodman Theatre.
Directed by Neel Keller, Orlandersmith “finds common humanity” (Variety) with “an urgent moral inquest” (The New York Times) of the social unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting of teenager Michael Brown. Pulling from a series of extensive interviews, Orlandersmith crafts a theatrical experience in which a diverse mosaic of voices tries to come to terms with the complex events that shook the nation.
Until the Flood made its world premiere at the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, with subsequent appearances off-Broadway (Rattlestick Theater) and The Milwaukee Repertory Theater.
Limited engagement from April 27 to May 17, 2018. For more information and tickets: www.goodmantheatre.org
