presents the Regional Premiere of
In Darfur by Winter Miller. Directed by Troy Scheid.

Presented by The Landing Theatre Company (LTC) at The Landing Theatre @ the Docks

Without Winter Miller, you might not know about the genocide that is occurring in Darfur.

Commissioned by the Guthrie Theater and the Playwrights Center in Minneapolis, and presented at The Public Theater in NY, IN DARFUR is the provocative account of three intertwined lives at a camp for internally displaced persons in Darfur.

The story follows an aid worker’s mission to save and protect lives, a journalist’s pursuit to deliver a “Page One” story and a Darfuri woman’s quest for safety. It is a searing story of urgency and international significance and how one voice can bring awareness to the entire world in the pursuit of change and peace.



A portion of the playwright’s royalties from IN DARFUR is being donated to an anti-genocide organization.

Intended for mature audiences.

“Urgent and fierce. Timely and Timeless. Truly a heroic act of playwriting.” – Ari Roth, Artistic Director of Theater J

“Winter’s play is an urgent and passionate response to a crisis unfolding at this moment.” – Oskar Eustis, Former Artistic Director of the Public Theater
