One Year Lease Theater Company brings their sold-out critically-acclaimed 2012 production of pool (no water) by controversial English playwright Mark Ravenhill back to NYC for a limited run.
pool (no water) is a visceral play about the fragility of friendship and the jealousy inspired by success. A famous artist invites old friends to her new home for a long awaited reunion. But the celebration comes to an abrupt end when the host suffers a horrific accident. An almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be the group's next work of art?
"In 60 minutes of shadow-cut theatrical witchcraft, Demos and her superb cast make Ravenhill's vinegary misanthropy dance, literally and figuratively."
-Scott Brown, NY Magazine
"Three cheers for the small but ambitious One Year Lease Theater Company for bringing this terrific 2006 play to local shores, in a vividly acted production. . ."
- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
