In the Soundless Awe
New Light Theater Project and Access Theater will present IN THE SOUNDLESS AWE by nationally acclaimed playwrights Jayme McGhan and Andy Pederson. Originally produced at Concordia University and the Kennedy Center ACTF Festival, the New York City Premiere will be directed by award-winner Sarah Norris. Previews begin November 20 at Access Theater with opening slated for November 23.

July 30, 1945. The U.S.S. Indianapolis is hit by two Japanese torpedoes, killing three-hundred sailors in the initial blast and leaving nine-hundred men to drift helplessly in the Pacific Ocean. The survivors are discovered almost five days later. When rescue ships and planes finally arrive, they witness hundreds of large shadows lurking around small groups of broken men drifting aimlessly in the current. Only three-hundred and twenty-one sailors are pulled from the blood-filled water.

This production takes place twenty-two years later, finding Charles Butler McVay III, the wrongly court-martialed and disgraced Captain of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, perpetually haunted by specters below, human and otherwise, who beckon him to join them.

In the Soundless Awe is a highly-theatrical, emotionally-wrought, and horrific imagining of the final nightmare of Captain McVay, the man at the helm of the worst Naval disaster in United States history.
