ABOUT Still Waters

Drama/horror, 10 min, 2F, 1M

Still Waters
Goofing around after an underwater photo shoot for a charity event. Hopefully, I'll be able to replace this photo with one from the premiere of this play soon - it's brand new and hasn't even been submitted to any theatres yet.

"Still Waters" was inspired by a nightmare I had that wasn't even particularly original or different, it was just the nightmare every parent has at some point. Sometimes all you can do to shake it off is to trap it on paper.

In the play, Gabrielle is troubled by haunting dreams after the drowning death of her young daughter. Raoul is equally distraught - but he's also ripped apart by the fact that Gabrielle dreams their daughter is a monster coming to get her. It's a fight between two broken, hurting people lashing out to try and handle their pain.
