On Stage

 


 

IN DARFUR   

March 31–April 18, 2010 
By Winter Miller 
Directed by Derek Goldman

Based on true events, this impeccably researched chronicle of the unfolding genocide in Sudan is a searing story of humanitarian urgency and compromised journalistic ethics.  Can one woman's story stand for the plight of a nation?  And what are the costs of mobilizing world opinion?
