THE WAY OF WATER is a play by Caridad Svich that pits the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico next to the lives of those affected by it. It's a story about four people making do as best they can, living their lives, and trying to stay afloat in the land of many compromised dreams, as the devastation of a health and environmental crisis scandal in the US Gulf is played out on a human scale. It's a play about poverty in America, rumors and truth, what is said and what gets written, and the quest for an honorable life. This edition of the play coincided with Welsh Fargo Stage Company's presentation of the play as part of its 2013 On the Edge Ian Rowlands season in Wales, UK.
