water, water, everywhere...
Collaboration with Blake Bishton, Emily Krause, and Elinor T Vanderburg

Every house has stories to tell if the walls felt like talking.  Especially when those walls are flowing with the memories of those who lived inside them. In this particular house on Governors Island, there are twins from the 1800s awaiting the arrival of city water; a man and his sister from a century later, hoping that bringing their mother to the house they grew up in will jolt her out of her dementia; and Fountain, a girl from the future who is desperately trying to survive in a world without drinking water. These stories and more come to life in this site-specific immersive theater experience. More information on the piece can be found here.

WIVES' TALE

2W, 1M

In an isolated town blighted by the Dust Bowl, a writer rents a room in a farmhouse run by the charismatic Ruth and her silent assistant, Lydia. Inexplicably drawn to the women and the house, he nonetheless suspects his hosts are not being honest with him. Why do they keep sneaking into his room at night? And how is it possible he wrote a story about the women years before he met them?

1W, 4M

In Washington, D.C., Helen (sometimes known as Margaret, sometimes known as Sarah) provides a unique service for wealthy men. Her clients seek to own the body parts of deceased politicians: A grandfatherly man purchases a bone from the foot of Chief Justice William Rehnquist; an ambitious intern acquires the hand of House Speaker Tip O’Neill. Though her customers’ expectations are high, there’s little that Helen can’t deliver. But when her business partner, Paul, introduces a client who requests the missing Kennedy brain, Helen’s livelihood is put in jeopardy. A darkly comic fable conceived for our current political climate, ELECTED REMAINS examines the relics of a dying America.
