About this show

Yara Arts Group, which typically builds its theater productions on first-hand research and workshops in Ukraine, has chosen to replace its upcoming production of "Dark Night Bright Stars," a play based on the friendship of a Ukrainian painter with an African-American actor in 1858, with Hitting Bedrock, a new work based on first-person testimonials of refugees from Donetsk and people stranded there. The company has conducted interviews over the past two years with young adults in Donetsk, who initially told of their dreams for a new life, but now describe either the rigors of refugee life in communities they have fled to or the hardships of life in the city if they have remained. The playscript combines these interviews with poetry and monologues by Serhiy Zhadan, the most popular writer of the post-independence generation in Ukraine.
