Event Details

A new version by Bryan Doerries
“Gospel strains that make the rafters tremble….Viscerally lifts the play into timelessness.” Ben Brantley, The New York Times.
“Distills the Greek tragedy as a commentary on the urgent questions…resulting from the death of Michael Brown.” Tim Teeman, The Daily Beast
Conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, this work is a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members of Ferguson, MO and features an original score performed by a core choir of Brown’s teachers, activists, and law enforcement from St. Louis and New York City. Each performance culminates in a powerful, audience-driven discussion about race and gender-based violence and social justice.
