In Darfur at the Public Theater
The Public Theater will present a developmental production of In Darfur, by Winter Miller , a fictional play that explores the current humanitarian crisis in Darfur, Sudan, at the Public Theater from 13 - 29 Apr 2007.
Working as research assistant to Nicholas Kristof, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist at the New York Times, Playwright Winter Miller is immersed in the issues surrounding the ongoing genocide in Darfur.
In Darfur, directed by Joanna Settle, is the provocative account of three intertwined lives at a camp for internally displaced persons in Darfur. The story follows an aid workerï¿½s mission to save and protect lives, a journalistï¿½s pursuit to deliver a 'Page One' story and a Darfuri womanï¿½s quest for safety. It is a searing story of urgency and international significance.
This developmental production will provide creative support to the playwright by giving her the opportunity to collaborate with a director, actors, and a design team in further development of the play. A work-in-progress, In Darfur will not be open to reviews.
Tickets go on sale 26 Mar 2007 at 1:00pm and will cost $15, to increase public accessibility. Twenty percent of the price of every ticket will be donated to organizations working on behalf of Darfur.
On 26 Apr 2007 there will be a benefit performance followed by a post-show discussion with Mia Farrow and other guests; tickets will be $50.
