Playwright and George School alum Winter Miller ’91 directed the off-Broadway play, No One is Forgotten in July. The production ran July 8 to 27, 2019 at the Rattlestick Theater in New York.

In the play, two women, Lali and Beng, are held captive, but no one knows where, why, or for how long. “I wanted the audience to project their own idea of who these people are and why they’re there,” Winter told Women and Hollywood. “At a workshop, I asked every person in the audience what they thought the two characters were in there for. Each person had a totally different idea. Some people thought it was because they were queer and traveling abroad, or they were hikers in the wrong place at the wrong time, or they’re in the U.S. and had been sex trafficked or that they were journalists.”

Winter is an award-winning playwright and founding member of the Obie-winning collective 13 Playwrights. She is best known for her drama In Darfur which premiered at The Public Theater, followed by a standing room only performance at their 1800-seat Delacorte Theater in Central Park, a first for a play by a woman. She holds an MFA from Columbia University and a B.A. from Smith College. Learn more.
