Winter Miller

"In Darfur is the provocative account of three intertwined lives at a camp for internally displaced persons in Darfur. The story follows an aid worker's mission to save and protect lives, a journalist's pursuit to deliver a "Page One" story and a Darfuri woman's quest for safety. It is a searing story of urgency and international significance."

 

 

“It’s an excellent poignant play.”  

—Nicholas D. Kristof, New York Times Opinion Columnist

 

“A play that forces us to question our moral responsibility to the victims of human rights abuse.”

—Lynn Nottage, Pulitzer winning playwright, Ruined

 

“Urgent and fierce. Timely and Timeless. Truly a heroic act of playwriting."

—Ari Roth, Artistic Director, Theater J

 

“A riveting and haunting play.”    

—Samantha Power, Pulitzer winning author, A Problem From Hell
