MRT Presents: Until The Flood
April 21 - May 5
The Merrimack Repertory Theatre is coming back with a virtual production of Until The Flood. In Ferguson, Missouri, 2014, the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown by a white police officer sparked weeks of protests and riots. Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith interviewed a wide cross section of residents to create eight composite characters for this play. Riveting and blunt, yet compassionate, the play eschews politics and the specifics of the shooting to explore the dreams, and struggles of these regular folks as they deal with fear, trauma and hope. The video of Until the Flood will play from Saturday, April 17, to Sunday, May 2.
