"we are destroyed"

Reflections on the Donner Party tragedy of 1846

An original oratorio.

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

A 90-minute musical meditation,  “we are destroyed” is performed oratorio-style with four actors and four musicians.  Major work-in-progress showings of the piece have been performed and/or excerpted at: The Public Theater, The Steppenwolf Theatre,  The Pasadena Playhouse (in conjunction with Lincoln Center Directors Lab West) and, most recently, at The Abrons Arts Center in a workshop production directed by Ed Schmidt.
