In Darfur

Chicago Premiere

Jan 19, 2011 - Mar 20, 2011

Playwright Winter Miller’s experiences accompanying Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof in Sudan inform this provocative account of the horrors of genocide. In a camp for internally displaced persons in Darfur, three lives intertwine — an aid worker trying to save lives, a Darfuri woman searching for safety and a journalist who believes that one front-page story can help stop the madness. Together they tell an intense, inspired-by-real-life story that demands international attention.

    [Mildred Marie] Langford is a revelation; she nails her character’s humanity. [Kelli] Simpkins and [Gregory] Isaac show the longing and frustration of those forced to stand by and watch. But the star of the show is the multimedia set; Amanda Sweger’s set design and Mike Tutaj’s video and projection work give us the images we need to understand the unthinkable.
