About this show

In its first New York performance, The Water Principle is an award-winning tragic-comic fable of exploitation and survival that takes place at the end of the road at the end of the world. Addie lives a fiercely independent life on a plot of land coveted by her neighbor, Weed, a self-proclaimed "businessman of action." Along comes Skimmer, a charming drifter as accommodating as Addie and Weed are ferocious. Will Weed seduce Skimmer with cans of beans and promises of partnership? Will Addie's "water principle" win out instead? This cautionary tale about what happens when precious resources run dry is laced with vicious wit and heartbreak as it speaks to this perilous moment in the life of our planet.
