Details: From the Water is a domestic drama in a supernatural crisis. Millions of people are disappearing, civilization is moving underground, and the downfalls keep coming. Alex wants to stay, Peter wants to fight, Ava wants closure, and the Numbers are preparing for extinction. This grounded science fiction thriller uses creatures and clones to define what it means to be human, and explores the strength it takes to fight against an unstoppable force.
Seven Siblings Theatre has been successfully producing work by established playwrights for over four years. The company is excited to be producing its first original script by Artistic Director, Will King. Having been in various forms of development for over a year, From the Water has been a collaborative process in the rehearsal room, with the actors and director probing deeper into the motivations, themes and discoveries of this story. What has emerged is an engaging play about love, loyalty, defining identity and what it truly means to be “home”.
Features Anna Silvija Broks as Alex, Will King as Peter, Shawn Lall as Doctor/1277X and Hilary Wirachowsky as Ava. Directed by Erik Helle. Written by Will King.
