Until The Flood (Classroom Version)

In partnership with ALL ARTS, the free broadcast and digital platform dedicated to the arts, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, and a consortium of regional theaters across the country, PCS is proud to present the broadcast premiere of Until The Flood. Originally commissioned by Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, Until The Flood was filmed in 2018 during the New York engagement at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater. PCS brought the production to Portland in 2019 to rave reviews and sold out performances.

Explore the play further with our Resource Guide containing relevant information of use to educators and students, such as a synopsis, cast list, and an analysis with discussion questions and activities compiled by one of our teaching artists. 

Take advantage of a virtual workshop hosted by our professional teaching artists - wherein they will dynamically explore text, character, movement, creation, and self-reflection even further, in collaboration with your students! Our team can also cater our workshop content to meet your classroom’s unique needs and goals.
