The Washing of the Water
A community fights a polluted past to renew itself and its watershed.
The Experimental Performance Laboratory at Caltech presents The Washing of the Water, a staged reading of the play by University of Riverside MFA student Marcus Renner. Directed by TACIT head Brian Brophy, The Washing of the Water will run for one day only.
The Washing of Water is based on over 60 interviews conducted across Altadena, La Cañada Flintridge, and Northwest Pasadena. The Washing of Water follows an artist activist, a homeless teenager, and a mother whose stories intersect as they fight a polluted past and search for a fresh start amidst the wilds of the Hahamongna Watershed Park.
The staged reading of The Washing of the Water concludes the second year of the Experimental Performance Laboratory at Caltech's New Plays Festival, a series of four staged readings of new science-based plays.
