WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Good Intentions Productions presents Peter Zablotsky's The Pool with Five Porches as part of the 10th annual New York International Fringe Festival. The play is about two men in desperate need who wait, along with an untold number of unseen others, at the edge of The Pool With Five Porches -- perhaps the purgatory of pain; perhaps the fountain of hope. The pool is believed to have the power to heal, but the catch is that only the first person to enter the pool after the waters start to roil will be healed; the rest must continue to wait, or be forever denied their miracle. A man has spent the last four years crawling his way to the edge of the pool; he has been stricken by the plague, and seeks to be made whole. As the play begins a second man bullies his way to the edge of the pool. This new visitor is physically healthy, strong, and imposing -- he seeks not a cure for a physical ailment, but relief from the pain of his family having been killed in an enemy's recent attack. The men are forced to rely on each other for survival as they wait for the pool to again stir. As the men continue to wait, they reach a point of tolerance, and then start to use each other to piece their lives back together -- one as a craftsman, the other as a trader, and to experience simple human contact. Their reliance deepens until the pool stirs for a final time. As the water starts to roil the men are confronted with the ultimate question: What miracles matter?
