The New York Times has called Orlandersmith "an otherworldly messenger, perhaps the sorcerer's apprentice, or a heaven-sent angel with the devil in her."   Weaving new tales, with the best from her acclaimed solo work, Stoop Stories offers a glimpse into the lives of people from her past, present and imagination. One of the truly groundbreaking, unique voices in contemporary American drama, Orlandersmith was one of the first to transition from a spoken word artist to a nationally produced playwright.   Photo Credit:  Susan Johann
