Memory Water: A Tale of Love, Loss and Liquid
Jan. 22-23, 7 p.m. and Jan. 28-30, 7 p.m. 2010
Drammy-winner Samantha Van Der Merwe directs Andrea Stolowitz's play about La Llorona, a poor woman who drowns her illegitimate children after her wealthy lover abandons them. Rather than demonizing her, the narrative digs into her mindset to perform this Medea-esque atrocity. It's one of the Fertile Ground festival's darker entries.
