The Fisherman's Wife
By Timothy Mason
Live, virtual readings Feb 26 & 27 at 7pm and Feb 28 at 4pm. All times CST.
Directed by Leo Geter
Featuring Bob Davis, Michelle O'Neill, Jason Rojas and Thallis Santesteban
In this new work, a young man goes on a fishing trip and comes home with a woman who becomes his wife. A whole new life opens for both of them — a sad story with a happy ending. Or is it? The Fisherman's Wife explores the stories we tell each other to make meaning of our lives, to rejoice together in our joys, and to survive the devastating pain we suffer.
