Performances begin July 8 at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater for the world premiere of Winter Miller's No One is Forgotten. A play about two people held in captivity, the newest work from the In Darfur playwright is a story about intimacy, surrender, and the will to live.
In No One is Forgotten, Lali and Beng are held captive. No one knows where they’ve been taken or if they’re alive. Or, maybe their story has been broadcast to the world?
The production stars Renata Friedman (Zurich) and three-time Drama Desk nominee Sarah Nina Hayon (Sweat).
Written and directed by Miller, No One is Forgotten is a New Georges-supported production that is part of Rattlestick's curated rental series. Opening night is July 12 for a limited run through July 27.
The production features set design by Meredith Ries, lighting design by Stacey DeRosier, and costume and props design by Rhys Roffey. Wednesday Sue Derrico serves as production stage manager and production manager.
