Overview

Based on the historically documented group of women, children and enslaved people who survived the battle of the Alamo, Texas native Katie Bender’s epic new play puts the story back into the hands of the people who lived to tell it. Told by a diverse ensemble of voices that didn’t make the history books, with supporting roles for some well-documented figures, Survivors, an Alamo Play is an intimately drawn look at the surprising alliances necessary to persist in the shifting and mercurial climate of Mexico’s fledgling democracy.
