    We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Südwestafrika, Between the Years 1884–1915

    A Drama by Jackie Sibblies Drury
    Sept. 19 – 29, 2019
    Black Box Theatre
    Directed by Ryan Hope Travis

    A group of actors—three black and three white—gather to recall the Herero and Namaqua genocide, a largely forgotten, but traumatic chapter in African history. Written by the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama winner, Jackie Sibblies Drury, this play follows their attempt to reenact the extermination of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers. As the group tackles this remote story, the horrific nature of the past collides with the well-intentioned present and the actors realize that what once seemed like distant history hits close to home.
