About this show

In this fascinating new play, a man and a woman, Moss and Avis, wake up one morning to find themselves in a strange house atop a mountain surrounded by water. The air is clear and the view exquisite, but they have no idea who they are and how they got there - they have lost their long-term memory. Are they husband and wife? Is this their house or are they guests? As they consider the possibilities, their mood shifts from bemused concern to anxious despair. On three different visits, a mysterious young woman named Wren fills in their biographies. Each time she does, however, the scenarios of their lives change radically. Lee Blessing's intriguing portrait of this couple's condition, Body of Water shows us that without the firmament of memory, life can be a never-ending stream of possibilities.
