Ontario is out of water and a pair of bandits search for their last hope – a water diviner by the name of Penn. Stories say she can crack the world like a coconut and make water bubble to the surface with nothing but her hands. But the bandits aren’t the only ones hunting her down. And what if there’s nothing left for Penn to divine?
An all woman cast in Natalie Frijia’s post-apocalyptic wild west asks how we would survive in world without water. Would we turn to community… or to revenge?
‘Christine Urquhart’s set, Sage Paul’s costumes, and Imogen Wilson’s props support the strong performances. Urquhart’s set features a painted backdrop that suggests a desert. It has a cutout circle that gets filled with a paper sun or moon. It’s beautifully evocative.’
