Published Reviews

"In Darfur is based on a real case in Darfur's Kalma camp that I once reported on. It's an excellent poignant play."

Nicholas D. Kristof, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist

"Urgent and fierce. Timely and Timeless. Unfolds at the cusp of calamity, inching up on genocide and whether to name it or not. Truly a heroic act of playwriting."

Ari Roth, Artistic Director, Theater J

"A play that forces us to question our moral responsibility to the victims of human rights abuse."

Lynn Nottage, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Ruined

"A riveting and haunting play."

Samantha Power, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, A Problem From Hell

"Illuminates and entertains. Winter takes us into the hearts of her characters and swiftly pulls us into their story."

Mia Farrow, actress and activist

"Winter's play is an urgent and passionate response to a crisis unfolding at this moment."

Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director, the Public Theater
