Reflections on the Donner Party tragedy of 1846
An original oratorio.
"You feel that you're present for something being born."
- NEW YORK OBSERVER
A 90-minute musical meditation, “we are destroyed” is performed oratorio-style with four actors and four musicians. Major work-in-progress showings of the piece have been performed and/or excerpted at: The Public Theater, The Steppenwolf Theatre, The Pasadena Playhouse (in conjunction with Lincoln Center Directors Lab West) and, most recently, at The Abrons Arts Center in a workshop production directed by Ed Schmidt.
