The Way of Water is a play that pits the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico next to the lives of those directly affected by it. It’s a story about four people making do as best they can, living their lives, and trying to stay afloat in the land of many compromised dreams, as the devastation of a health and environmental crisis in the US 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 2011 Winter Writers Retreat at the Lark Play Development Center in New York City.

This reading is presented as part of an international reading scheme in collaboration with NoPassport theatre alliance. Dramaturgy: Heather Helinsky and R. Alex Davis. Official web page at
