UNTIL THE FLOOD
by Dael Orlandersmith
directed by Elena Conti
Tempe Center for the Arts Studio Theatre
February 16 – March 2, 2024

After Ferguson, the ghosts of Michael Brown
UNTIL THE FLOOD is a gripping and revelatory new play constructed and informed by interviews playwright Dael Orlandersmith conducted with a cross-section of people in and around Ferguson. All of whom have vastly different perspectives on the incident that turned the town into a flashpoint in America’s never-ending struggle for racial justice. As it examines the community fallout after the fatal officer-involved shooting of Michael Brown, UNTIL THE FLOOD hunts for deeper societal truths - giving voice to a community haunted by injustice and a country desperately yearning for change.
“…so palpably compassionate, it achieves a great beauty by bringing us together rather than driving us apart.” - The Chicago Tribune
***Content Alert: Based on real events, UNTIL THE FLOOD includes references to racism, bigotry, prejudice, and off-stage violence. The play contains strong adult content/language, including racial slurs. Recommended for ages 16 and older.***
