Reviews and Raves for Until The Flood

November 12, 2020


Until The Flood is so palpably compassionate, it achieves a great beauty by bringing us together rather than driving us apart." –Chicago Tribune 

“She brings the questions, the pain and even the unspeakable thoughts of hundreds, if not millions, to life. Until The Flood is an urgent moral inquest.” –The New York Times Critic’s Pick

Until The Flood is the best kind of theatrical masterpiece — the kind that shatters a slew of assumptions and leaves the audience to pick up the pieces.” –Willamette Week

“In this powerful one-woman show, Dael Orlandersmith embodies the frustrations and fears of an entire community.”
–The Oregonian
