In addition to the streamed performance, reservation holders will also have an opportunity to attend a live, talk-back session on Sunday, January 24 from 4-5 pm, where you may ask questions of the actors and the production team for Until the Flood. The talk-back session will be held on the Zoom meeting platform, with access information sent via email prior to the session start time, and only to those who reserved a performance date. The talk-back session will be moderated by Eleanore Tapscott, an award-winning Washington area actor and director, who is also a member of the Dominion Stage board of directors.

About the Play: On August 9, 2014, an unarmed 18-year-old black man named Michael Brown Jr. was fatally shot by a 28-year-old white police officer named Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. These are facts. But how we interpret these facts is shaped by our experiences. Based on dozens of interviews conducted in St. Louis in spring of 2015, playwright Orlandersmith presents nine composite characters who represent the spectrum of viewpoints on racism in America. Here are those characters and the actors who portray them:

Louisa – Bridgett McCain

Rusty – Jack Mayo

Hassan – Germôna Sharp

Connie – Amy Griffin

Reuben – Neal Burks

Dougray – Tom Flatt

Paul – Marcus Murphy

Edna – Kecia Campbell

The Narrator – Alicia Pilgrim
