Theater Alliance presents

Flood City

by Gabrielle Reisman

Directed by Jenna Duncan

May 10-June 17, 2018

Regional Premiere

“Tall metal beams, endless metal beams, that a dozen men can’t even move that are bigger than any train and we’re all making steel all day and all night in smoke. I know I’m seeing the future.”

In Johnstown, Pennsylvania in 1889, the Great Flood has decimated the vibrant steel town, leaving behind a ragtag crew of survivors, aid workers, and surveyors to assess the damage and speculate what, or who, could be responsible. A century later, at a bar in Johnstown, recently laid off steelworkers ponder their uncertain futures in a town when industry, and the world, seems to have left them behind. Traversing time and space, Flood City is a hopeful dark comedy about disasters, corporate (ir)responsibility, and a community’s resilience in the wake of the unimaginable.
