Waterless Places is haunting and haunted, lyrical and modern. The characters are drawn with a depth and clarity that activates my actor imagination. The setting of the play makes me wish I was a designer. Waterless Places is on my list to produce! It’s a show of love and light breaking through hardship. It’s a show about the bonds that run deeper than blood or marriage, to the very core of a person’s being. It’s about being present with each other in despair and redemption. It’s a beautiful play.
