The Darfur Compromised
by Trevor Stankiewicz

Part-documentary theatre, part-interpretative fiction, and part-satire, The Darfur Compromised is entertaining and informative.

Directed by Rudy Gerson

The play tells of Jackson and his mentor, Professor, who travel together through the history of American activism to end the Darfur genocide, featuring figures such as George W. Bush, Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, and Secretary General Kofi Annan.

As Jackson learns more and more about the conflict, he is challenged to redefine himself and his beliefs to his girlfriend, his parents, and most importantly, himself.

The play is a theatrical look back at the events that led to the Darfur Genocide, an interrogation of the inaction of the present, and a call to arms regarding its future. Featuring scenes right out of history, it will help teach those who are unfamiliar with the tragedy as well as reinvigorate those who know it all too well.
