The headlines only tell a piece of Ferguson's story. This is the rest.


After the death of Michael Brown shook the nation to its core, Pulitzer Prize finalist and Obie Award winner Dael Orlandersmith set out to explore the social unrest in Ferguson, Missouri that followed. Using hundreds of interviews she conducted herself, Orlandersmith created eight fictional characters to represent the broad spectrum of perspectives that continue to define the city and our country at large.


Discover why she's been called "one of the country's top talents for solo performance" (Time Out Chicago) as she embodies people from all sides of the controversy in this mesmerizing, fluidly poetic piece. Go on a gripping, emotional journey and see firsthand "the potential of art to reach across cultural boundaries and bring us all closer together" (TheaterMania).
