Dael Orlandersmith’s play Until the Flood is being released in audio for the fist time by Audible.
The stage production, inspired by interviews following the 2014 shooting of black teenager Michael Brown, ran at the Traverse Theatre as part of the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Orlandersmith won The Stage Edinburgh Award for her solo-performance, as well as The Scotsman Fringe First Award.
Until the Flood was originally commissioned by the Repertory Theatre of St Louis and produced by London’s Arcola Theatre.
It is directed by Neel Keller with sound design and original music by Justin Ellington.
Orlandersmith said: “I was excited about having a play performed for the ear.
"What does that sound like when you’re in a room without watching a person? My hope is that this production allows the listener to close their eyes and see the people who’ve inspired the play."
The audio version of the play will be released on May 15.
It follows a collection of 2019 Fringe plays released by Audible in October, including Berri George’s debut Larp, Sorcha McCaffrey’s Ladybones and Typical by Ryan Calais Cameron.
Abigail Gonda, commissioning producer for theatre at Audible, said: “During this time when audiences cannot gather together for live performances, Audible Theatre is thrilled to bring Until the Flood to listeners across the world.
"Dael Orlandersmith’s virtuosic performance joins Audible’s growing collection of theatrical storytelling."
