The Landing Theatre Company presents - In Darfur

The Landing Theatre Company
presents the Regional Premiere of
In Darfur by Winter Miller. Directed by Troy Scheid.
April 23 - May 13, 2017

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.
