The Wirtz Center will no longer check proof of vaccination; however, masks will be required inside the theatre for performances.

The Wirtz Center for the Performing Arts, in association with One Book, One Northwestern, will host a screening of Until the Flood, written and performed by Pulitzer Prize finalist Dael Orlandersmith, in a Rattlestick Theatre Production presented in association with the Goodman Theatre and Center Theatre Group. The “palpably compassionate” performance (The Chicago Tribune) explores the social uprising in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting of teenager Michael Brown. Pulling from her extensive interviews with Missouri residents, Orlandersmith crafts a stunning theatrical experience that must be seen. The Los Angeles Times asserts that “Orlandersmith gives expression to America’s racial stalemate with lyrical flow. Written with as much empathy as outrage, Until the Flood quietly assures that the struggle lives on.” The screening will be followed by a conversation with Dael Orlandersmith and School of Communication Assistant Dean and Executive Artistic Director Tanya Palmer.
