Show Information
Good Water by Jessica Moreland
Directed by Max Koh
Good Water is a post-apocalyptic retelling of the Pandora’s Box myth. After life-ending calamity strikes, Mica and Hesiod do their best to survive. Their only companion is a curious AI named Pandora, whose only wish is to see the outside world. A mysterious box appears in Pandora’s room, and she refuses to open it. Dealing with grief and fighting for hope, what are Mica and Hesiod willing to do to get that box? How do you keep going when you’ve arrived at the end of the story?”
The play is in two acts, running approximately 90 minutes without intermission.
A copy of the script can be emailed upon request.
