THEATER | "A Body of Water"


Beginning Thursday, Geva Theatre Center will host "A Body of Water," a production by Ithaca-based The Kitchen Theatre Company. In "A Body of Water," a long-married husband and wife wake up in a beautiful summer home on a manicured green lawn, surrounded by an immense body of water. The couple have no idea where or who they are. Their amnesic existence is made more complex by a young woman who appears suddenly with information, and some explanations. Without any basis of memory, the husband and wife navigate a foreign world where certainty is an unaffordable luxury. Written by Lee Blessing, "A Body of Water" is directed by Michele Minnick, and features Carmen Roman, James Leaming, and Lesley Gurule. Roman and Leaming (married in real life) portray the couple, Avis and Moss, and Gurule plays Wren, the aforementioned young woman. "A Body of Water" will run through April 5.

"A Body of Water" will open on Thursday, March 19, at Geva Theatre Center, 75 Woodbury Boulevard. 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays; 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays; 3 p.m. on Sundays. $35.
