I was emotionally drained. Coming back again with friends next Saturday.
Was not really looking forward to it, for various reasons, scared of the violence, horror, I guess. Thought it was SO WELL DONE and I learned so much. I was completely absorbed through-out – the use of the local language with the translation was very inclusive, in a good way. The set was incredible.
I specifically wanted to attend when there was a discussion group. I was somewhat disappointed with that. Though the experts were definitely experts, and the moderator was good, the way of speaking of the woman in particular was so round-about that it was very hard to follow and boring. Unforgiveable, that. And such a shame.
My wife and I attended In Darfur on Friday Feb 11 were impacted by the stark reality of your production. We are subscribers and attend regularly.
I was profoundly impacted by In Darfur. My sleep was interrupted at 5 am with a flood of emotion. I could not sleep so I worked out. The feelings of sadness, pain, depression, and just plain tears emerged unannounced. All of the actress/actors performed exquisitely and Mildred Lang-Ford stole my heart and soul. The Study Guide, video and other materials have been helpful to give me a basis for action.
As I’ve come to expect, another superbly produced play. I found myself intensely tuned in to the expressive words and actions of all of the actors. My only concern is what I feel to be more-than-necessary use of video to enhance the stage action. If this becomes customary, how soon before a staged event becomes a movie?

Excellent production. Beautifully acted, as usual.
