Three Bone Theatre presents the Charlotte premiere of By The Water An award-winning play by Sharyn Rothstein, Directed by Ron Law Hurricane Sandy has just ravaged the lifelong Staten Island home of Marty and Mary Murphy. But the storm has ripped apart more than just the walls: with their neighbors too devastated to stay, the couple’s beloved community is in danger of disappearing forever. When the Murphys’ sons arrive to help their parents dig out, past betrayals come rushing to the surface. With fierce compassion and poignant humor, By The Water reminds us that the very powers that tear us apart can also bring us together. By The Water earned Sharyn Rothstein the prestigious American Theatre Critics Association Francesca Primus Prize for emerging female playwrights. Rothstein was also named to the 2014 Kilroys List. There are six performances of By The Water- February 28-March 2 and March 7-9 at 8:00pm at the Duke Energy Theatre at Spirit Square. Tickets are available now through Carolina Tix- $22 in advance, $28 at the door and $18 for groups of 10 or more when purchased in advance through the Blumenthal Box Office. By the Water contains some adult language, recommended for ages 14+ Four stars! “This Superstorm drama is a force of nature.”- Time Out New York Critics Pick! “Rothstein’s affecting play traces the impact of a devastating natural disaster on a middleclass couple who were already trudging uphill. Drawn with acute sympathy and in gritty detail, the play dramatizes the kind of story that filled newspapers in the months after Hurricane Sandy. It’s clear from the pungent dialogue—which is seasoned with salty humor—that Rothstein knows these characters inside out.”- New York Times
