The Jerome Stage

September 5 – October 5, 2008

A New Orleans couple awakens in the middle of the night to find their house filling with water. Seeking refuge in their attic, they grapple with the rising water and the life they have lived together. Caught between an attic of memories and a rooftop that reveals a sea of sunken houses and wailing sirens, the man and woman wait for rescue. Rising Water was nominated for a 2008 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, commissioned by the National New Play Network and read in Unicorn’s In-Progress New Play Reading Series.
