‘Until The Flood’ Plays One More Week At the Kirk Douglas Theatre

Dael Orlandersmith in ‘Until the Flood,’ which will be part of Center Theatre Group’s 2019 – 2020 season at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. Written by Orlandersmith and directed by Center Theatre Group Associate Artistic Director Neel Keller.

*Until The Flood stars Dael Orlandersmith in a gripping solo performance set in the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014.

Until The Food draws you in to experience each character that she portrays on a personal level, as they observe the political incorrectness and grapple with their feelings about the complex society in which they dwell.

White police officer Darren Wilson, fatally shot an unarmed Michael Brown on August 2, 2014.  Brown was allegedly involved in a robbery before the encounter with the police.

Officer Wilson alleged that Brown was reaching for his gun.  The community responded in an uproar, which resulted in marches, protests and ultimately an investigation of the Ferguson Police Department by the Justice Department.  They determined a pattern of racially biased law enforcement.

As unsettling as the subject matter is, Until The Flood is unique in that it doesn’t just portray another version of a grieving family and friends, but it delves into the hearts and the homes of the bystanders.  The silent majority that make up for the population.

Through masterful writing and acting by Ms. Orlandersmith and direction by Neel Keller, the audience sees the honest truth of what our friends and neighbors really feel.

Dael Orlandersmith masters the art of becoming another human soul right before your very eyes. Until The Flood is on stage now through February 23rd 2020 at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City.  It is presented by The Center Theatre Group where Michael Ritchie is Artistic Director, Meghan Pressman is Managing Director, Douglas C. Baker is Producing Director and the Founding Artistic Director is the late Gordon Davidson.
