Dael OrlandersmithThe latest work by award winning playwright, performer and Goodman Artistic Associate Dael Orlandersmith focuses on the social unrest following the fatal police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. The characters – which include a middle-aged black teacher, a white police officer, an older black barbershop owner, a young black teenager, and a preacher—are composites Orlandersmith created after extensively interviewing Ferguson residents. The result is a diverse mosaic of voices exploring the complex ways in which trauma manifests itself in a community.

Commissioned by the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, the play will receive its world premiere in St. Louis in October, 2016.
