Rattlestick welcomes back alumni writer Dael Orlandersmith (Horsedreams, Pulitzer-Prize Finalist Yellowman) with the New York premiere of her piece UNTIL THE FLOOD, written in response to Michael Brown’s death and commissioned by St. Louis Repertory. Having interviewed scores of St. Louis residents, Orlandersmith portrays the many faces found within the community, giving each a chance to take center stage and holding no one viewpoint above others.
