What \\Washed Ashore// Astray

March 25, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

“sunset on the shoreline the sky and the sea blur the sea gasps for breath”

What \\Washed Ashore //Astray: a sensory play about deterioration, by contemporary playwright Benjamin Benne, is a poetic play written in overlapping free verse that tells the story of elderly twin sisters, Cat and Chris, who reunite in a cabin on the Pacific Northwest shoreline after it becomes apparent one of them will die within the year. Everything has aged: the cottage, their bodies, the world around them. The depth of connection between the twins and their relationship to the spaces they inhabit paint a beautiful, character-driven picture of senescence, childhood, and identity. This play questions the mutable nature of time through memory and how we can access our past so fully- if not so realistically- in our minds.
