Lark Play Development Center, New York City
presents a roundtable reading of

THE WAY OF WATER
a new play by Caridad Svich

directed by Jose Zayas
dramaturg: Heather Helinsky

February 16, 2012 at 2 PM.
This reading is by invitation only,
and not open to the general public.

The Way of Water is a play that pits the BP oil spill next to the lives of those affected by it. It’s a story about four people making do as best they can, living their lives, and just trying to stay afloat in the land of many compromised dreams, as the devastation of a to-this-day mostly under-reported health crisis scandal in the Gulf is played out on a human scale. It’s a play about poverty in America, rumors and truth, what is said and what gets written, and the quest for an honorable life.

The Way of Water was developed at the Winter Writers Retreat at the Lark Play Development Center in New York City.
