A modern take on a Greek tragedy, a scorned husband and father returns home after a 17-year absence - with a new girlfriend in tow - to face the ex-wife who still blames him for a devastating loss in their family's past. This tense domestic drama turns shocking as a startling twist is revealed, leading to a stunning climax.
The production team for THE WATER'S EDGE includes: Jeremiah Barr (set design), Derek Bertelsen (costume design), Clayton Horath (music composition), Melissa Albertario (assistant director) and Samantha Barr (stage manager) and Danielle Moore (assistant stage manager).
