Truth in Translation Video

The Truth in Translation Project brought to light stories of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission as told from the point of view of the Commission’s young interpreters.

The founders of the project intended to only tour post-war international conflict areas, but after seeing the play in Kigali, Rwanda, Lauren Embrey suggested that there was plenty of conflict in the U.S. as well. This led to the American premiere of the production at SMU’s Bob Hope Theatre in 2007, after which the cast and production traveled to Flint, MI, Colorado Springs, CO, Jackson Hole, WY, and Washington, D.C.
