A benefit for theater artists impacted by Super Storm Sandy
Was it morning in America or were we mourning America? I couldn’t tell.
It was fall in America. Or maybe the fall of America. I just couldn’t tell.
~~Teacher Alice from Hell and High Water
~~ by Jamuna Yvette Sirker
“BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN,” “POIGNANT AND SHARPLY SATIRIC.”
Based on 2009 New Works Winner Jamuna Yvette Sirker’s personal experience in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Hell and High Water follows a small neighborhood through the innocent days just before Katrina and the harrowing time after the sky fell. It is a story of surviving epic loss and our collective need for stories in doing so.
“POETIC, SURPRISINGLY FUNNY, AND AT TIMES BRUTAL PLAY THAT IS A FANTASIA ON THE THEME OF SECURITY IN AMERICA" - Epic Theater Center
“AMONG THE CLASSICS THAT DOCUMENT [THE] HISTORY [OF HURRICANE KATRINA].” - Anita Velez Mitchell, theater critic for NYC’s La Voz News
