WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Chay Yew directs the world premiere of Kia Corthron's A Cool Dip in the Barren Saharan Crick, a co-production with The Play Company and the Culture Project. When an African preacher-in-training is taken in by a family in the American South, he finds his calling in the broken lives around him. The town's water supply is depleted by drought, a young orphan is starved for guidance, and a mother and daughter are haunted by tragedy, but the relentlessly upbeat preacher determines to battle - however he can - the personal and political forces that threaten the ecology of his new home.
