Adapted from the Greek Oresteia by Yael Farber
“This is art from the gut. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” – London Times
Set after the fall of apartheid, South African playwright and director Yael Farber’s MoLoRa re-imagines the ancient Greek Oresteia to tell the story of her own country’s painful and extraordinary transition to democracy, and illuminate the universal and excruciating choice for any victim: to seek revenge or choose forgiveness.
Performances Through July 24th

Written & Performed by Nilaja Sun
Directed by Hal Brooks
“A marvelous performance. Touching and funny.”
- The New York Times
“Nilaja Sun tells us something vital about our world. No Child… goes where theater rarely dares to tread.”
- New York Magazine
Obie Award-winning actress and solo performer Nilaja Sun will return to Barrow Street Theatre in her Off-Broadway smash No Child… which began performances at BST in 2006 and ran for an astonishing 311 performances, playing to sold-out audiences for over a year.
No Child… is a tour-de-force exploration of the New York City public school system, in which Sun fearlessly transforms with rapid-fire precision into the teachers, students, parents administrators, janitors and security guards who inhabit our schools and shape the future of America, making this play one of the most acclaimed theatrical events in recent years.
