WASHING MACHINE is a tragicomic solo performance about the mysterious death of a five year old girl who drowned inside a laundromat washing machine. Inspired by a June 2005 Washington Post article, the play is a bracing re-imagining of the five year old girl's final moments of breath as she and the small town wrestle with the consequences of her death. Starring up and coming actress Dana Berger, the play expands the girl's last hallucinogenic seconds as she transforms into eight characters that all play a part in her drowning.
