“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

Pulitzer Prize finalist and celebrated performer Dael Orlandersmith (Forever) explores the social unrest in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting of teenager Michael Brown. Pulling from her extensive interviews with Ferguson 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.
