Arcola Theatre presents

Until The Flood

Written and performed by Dael Orlandersmith

Directed by Neel Keller

Celebrated artist and Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith (Yellowman) performs the European premiere of her poetic and revelatory play.

In 2014, African American teenager Michael Brown was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson. In this urgent and gripping drama, based on real-life interviews with Missouri residents in the aftermath of the shooting, Dael Orlandersmith portrays the many faces of a community rallying for justice, and a country still yearning for change.


Also playing at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh as part of the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
