    "Pool (no water)" by Mark Ravenhill

    Presented by at Chelsea Theatre Works

    April 13 - May 4, 2013


    A play about the perils of making art and/or making friends.

    pool (no water) is staged in an intimate studio setting.
    Seating limited to 18 per performance.

    Recommended for mature audiences: language & partial nudity.

    A famous artist invites old friends to her luxurious new home for a long awaited reunion. But the celebration comes to an abrupt end when the host suffers a horrific accident. An almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be the group’s next work of art?

    Published 10 years after his critically-acclaimed Shopping and F**king, this piece by Mark Ravenhill is an unflinching look at the vulnerability of friendship, the power of resentment, and a deep-seated yearning to create something truly memorable.

    "Terrific...Mr. Ravenhill’s writing has a hypnotic beauty...Its sneaky, almost guilty-pleasure appeal is linked to our natural identification with these attractive, articulate young men and women as they coolly rationalize behavior that, seen from the outside, might look more than a little monstrous." -NY Times

    "This piece made me laugh, cringe, and think a great deal in a mere sixty minutes...go see pool (no water).” —The Huffington Post

    pool (no water) is being performed in rep with Luther by Ethan Lipton.
