Review:

“Provocative, witty, and original.”  —Henry Louis Gates, Alphonse Fletcher University professor, Harvard University, author, Life Upon These Shores

“The stage for Damnatio Memoriae may be set in Ancient Rome, but its powerful and often laugh-out-loud story of the perils of migration and memory transcends our modern borders and times. Timely, and timeless, Damnatio Memoriae pulls back the curtain on immigration realities in Europe—and the United States.” —Reyna Grande, author, The Distance Between Us 

Damnatio Memoriae juxtaposes tales from the ancient world with stories as urgent as tomorrow’s headlines. In a timeless examination of human rights, human dignity, and what it truly means to be called citizen, the play reveals forgotten stories while bringing to life the dilemmas and conflicts of our modern world, reminding us that, in so many ways, they are one and the same.”  —Rilla Askew, author, Kind of Kin
