About This Show

In the summer of 1916, a series of freakish and fatal shark attacks paralyzed the Jersey Shore. Further inland, a polio outbreak plagued Philadelphia, while the cloud of World War I loomed over the entire nation. As the forces of nature, disease, and war close in, people struggling to adapt must face a monster whose evolution has led to millions of years of survival- a monster who now faces some terrors of her own. Spanning several cities and the infinite depths of the ocean, Matawan conjures an unusual moment in American history and the ways in which our hidden selves can wreak just as much havoc as catastrophe.
