by Miranda Craigwell • Directed by M. Bevin O'Gara

A dark Louisiana fugue that stretches from antebellum days to post-Katrina, Shelterchronicles the stories of a handful of souls stranded in the Superdome. What future is possible if we can't make sense of the past? Lies splinter the truth for which these souls search while everywhere, the water keeps rising.

Featuring: Jacqui Parker*, Chinasa Ogbuagu*, Kola Ogundiran*, Joshua Coleman*, Jane Pfitsch*, Talia Robinson, Chris Burns*, Jason Cross, and Omar Robinson.
