WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The 2014 fatal police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown brought international attention to the town of Ferguson, Missouri, and the festering history of race relations in America. Award-winning playwright, performer, and Goodman artistic associate Dael Orlandersmith brings to life a riveting exploration of the tragedy and its aftermath. Based on dozens of interviews with Ferguson residents, Until the Flood encompasses the perspective of such disparate people as a middle-aged black teacher, an elderly barbershop owner, and a white policeman. The result: a richly complex mosaic of a community — and a country — in trauma.
