"Man can't get sick in this country"
Synopsis: The Way of Wateris a play that pits the aftermath of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico next to the lives of those directly affected by it. It's a story about four people making do as best they can, living their lives, and trying to stay afloat in the land of many compromised dreams, as the devastation of a health and environmental crisis in the US Gulf is played out on a human scale. It's a play about poverty in America, rumors and truth, what is said and what gets written, and the quest for an honorable life.
