MORE ABOUT THE PLAY
Vi, a lonely girl in a creaky old house, is burdened by a predatory shrink, a crumbling mother, bad dreams and a haunting loss-- until her new ghostlike friend Renata promises to either guide or force her to face down the frightening Thing in the Basement.
WATCH is a theatrical ghost story about the range of human perception, from the “real” to the supernatural to pathology-fueled hallucination, and who gets to decide what’s acceptable within the spectrum. It’s about the wisdom that lives in the visions of atypical minds and in supernatural experience, wisdom that exists outside scientific authority. It’s also about a young girl who, having lost her father, employs her unique gifts of perception to attempt to heal herself.
WATCH has been developed at the Women's Project (NYC), Trinity Rep (Providence, RI), and Kitchen Dog Theater (Dallas TX). It had a workshop production at the Strand Theater in Baltimore, but has never been fully produced.
