Staging the Genocide in Darfur

core-poster5

I am the founder and Artistic Director of Moving Target Theatre, which partners with humanitarian and progressive organizations to bring theatre that engages the social issues of our times directly to the community.

We have no space of our own.

movingtargetlogo-copyOur “theatre” consists of community centers, churches, mosques, synagogues, union halls and schools – the places where people gather to discuss and organize action around the issues that affect their lives.

Our current production — in partnership with Orange County for Darfur — is the play In Darfur by Winter Miller.

In Darfur is a contemporary examination of the unfolding tragedy of Darfur. An idealistic New York Times reporter risks everything to force that paper to highlight the Darfur story. But the telling the truth about Darfur increases the danger for everyone involved, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats and on the edge of the abyss.

The next performance of In Darfur is this Saturday, March 21, at 7:00 pm at Christ Our Redeemer AME Church (in partnership with University Synagogue), 46 Maxwell St., Irvine, CA 92618.

The performance is free.

To reserve tickets, for more information, or to schedule a performance, call (949) 300-4100 or go to the website of Orange County for Darfur.

We hope to see you there.

UPDATE:

The performances of In Darfur at COR AME Church and St. Anselm’s Church were enormously successful.  Upcoming performances include the Tapestry Unitarian Universalist Church in Mission Viejo and Chapman University in Orange, California.  Please check  Orange County for Darfur or the facebook page of Moving Target Theatre for specific times, dates, and venues, or to inquire about bringing the production to your community.
