The Story

Celebrated writer, performer and Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith interviewed St. Louisans from every corner of the region about recent social unrest. From these conversations, she has crafted a stunning piece that reflects the complexity of St. Louis. Orlandersmith’s play is a mosaic of voices that tells our region’s story without advancing any one viewpoint above others. A world premiere, commissioned by The Rep.
