"A poetic, time-and-space bending exploration of race and desire, set in the attic of an abandoned plantation house during a night of never-ending rain."
Stephanie Fleischmann, American Theater Magazine (November 2006)


Voices Underwater received its shared three-city U.S. national premiere in Fall 2006 with Synchronicity Performance Group at 7 Stages in Atlanta, Serendipity Theatre at the National Pastime Theater in Chicago, and Gas & Electric Arts at the Adrienne Theatre in Philadelphia. It received a subsequent production in Fall 2007 with Salvage Vanguard Theater in Austin.


The script was developed in San Francisco at The Bay Area Playwrights Festival at the Magic Theatre (2004) and via a Playwrights Foundation workshop-production at A Traveling Jewish Theater (2005), in Atlanta by Theater Emory's Brave New Works Festival (2004) through a grant from the Sister City Project, in New York at NYU's hotINK! Festival (2003), and in Austin during two readings at the University of Texas at Austin’s Monday Night Lab Series (2002, 2003). 


Voices Underwater received a Jerome Fellowship from the Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis and was a finalist for the Weissberger Award at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Monologues from the play are published in The Playwrights' Center's Monologues for Men and Monologues for Women.
