H2O by Jane Martin
by Jane Martin

Directed by Morrie Piersol

September 4 - 27, 2014
at Theatre Gym
Located in the Virginia Rep Center (formerly known as Theatre IV's Empire Theatre)
114 W. Broad St.

After arriving in the City of Angels, an aimless young man catapults to movie stardom and into Hollywood's sleazy celebrity culture. Banking on his fame (and name), he is soon selected to appear on Broadway in Hamlet. Given full casting approval, he embarks to New York City to seek out his Ophelia and encounters his muse and his match a young evangelical Christian woman set on getting the roleand saving his life. From the reclusive, madcap world of Jane Martin comes this drama/comedy/lovestory about self-destruction, notoriety, and the dark journey to purity and salvation.  

"At turns powerful, tragic, romantic, amoral, unself-conscious and self-obsessed, this complex  one-act drama and its two passionate yet oddly distant characters tumble down through the circles of a Dantesque, or perhaps even an existential hell without ever quite grasping the reasons why ... This play is so moving and effective, so completely and entirely unforgettable." - Washington Times

"It will leave you dealing not only with your feelings about the characters, but also reconsidering art, life, and The Meaning of It All." - BroadwayWorld.com

"Yes, H2O is a masterpiece and will surely be performed, difficult as it is, throughout the Christian/Hollywood world ... Martin's H2O embodies America and its Culture War in the 21st century.  In fact, H2O is this nation's Culture War writ large, or should I say small, lying embedded in its two-person sadomasochistic love triage.  Who will live and who will die?  And can one survive without the other?" - MD Theatre Guide

H20 premiered at the Contemporary American Theatre Festival in West Virginia, in 2013.
