Forever by Dael Orlandersmith
Directed by Jordan Lichtenheld
is a semi-autobiographical work that traces the tempestuous relationship between a young girl, growing up in East Harlem, and her ex-dancer mother, a force of nature and a troubled mind who has been forced by circumstances beyond her control to give up so much in order to survive, and to keep her daughter safe.

Until the Flood by Dael Orlandersmith
Directed by Renee Nixon
is a play comprised of interviews Ms. Orlandersmith conducted with residents of Ferguson, Missouri in the aftermath of the Michael Brown killing. Its reach is broad, and the characters introduced range from the introspective to the fiercely confrontational. Dates: Jan 29, Feb 4, 6, and 7 at 7 pm and Sunday, Jan 31 and Feb 14 at 2 pm.

NOTE: The two play repertory season will be performed live on Burning Coal’s stage each date, but only available to view through a livestreamed event. Dates: January 28, 30, February 5, 11 and 13th at 7 pm and Sunday, February 7, 2021 at 2 pm.
