A famous artist invites her old friends to her luxurious new home. For one night only, the group is back together. But celebrations come to an abrupt end when the host suffers an horrific accident. As the victim lies in a coma, an almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be their next work of art? Pool (No Water) is a visceral and shocking new play about the fragility of friendship and the jealousy and resentment inspired by success.
Featuring Marquis Heath, Sierra Lynch, Steve Maggio and Josy Smth
"Mr. Ravenhill’s writing has a hypnotic beauty itself, as the locked chambers of each of the character’s minds are slowly exposed... The play is full of perceptive commentary on the tension between affection and antipathy among friends — and the interior tensions in the individual soul between self-love and self-hate.
"Its sneaky, almost guilty-pleasure appeal is linked to our natural identification with these attractive, articulate young men and women as they coolly rationalize behavior that, seen from the outside, might look more than a little monstrous."
