Dael Orlandersmith's solo documentary play follows the aftermath of the 2014 police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Originally commissioned by Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, Orlandersmith's show (directed by Neel Keller) played at several regionals around the country, including a production at the Goodman in the spring of 2018. This archival recording will stream free for three years through All ARTS app from WNET in New York. Reader critic Dan Jakes wrote of the Goodman presentation, "Derived on dozens of interviews with Ferguson and Saint Louis residents, Orlandersmith has crafted eight composite characters with layered, thorny takes on the anger, fear, privilege, injustice, assumptions, and institutional breakdowns that factor into the cycle of violence committed against people of color by American law enforcement."
