“we are destroyed”

Reflections on The Donner Party Tragedy of 1846

 

 

An original oratorio by Howard Fishman

A 90-minute musical meditation,  “we are destroyed” is performed oratorio-style with four actors and four musicians.  Major workshops of the piece have been performed and/or excerpted at: The Public Theater, The Steppenwolf Theatre, The Abrons Arts Center and The Pasadena Playhouse (in conjunction with Lincoln Center Directors Lab West).

"You feel that you're present for something being born."
