Pool [No Water]

Presented by Black Swan State Theatre Company

Written by Mark Ravenhill, Directed by Adam Mitchell



Sally, a famous artist, invites her old friends to luxuriate by her new pool. They have struggled to make a living from the art world, while she has achieved international success. They are all back together once again and the party is in full swing. A horrific accident occurs to the hostess and pushes the group to make a bold decision. Could Sally lying in a coma become their greatest work of all? Is this their one chance for success?

Inspired by a true story, this shocking new play by British playwright Mark Ravenhill (author of Shopping and F**king) exposes professional rivalry, jealousies and the innermost thoughts nobody wants to confess.
