Presented by *Necessary Digression and The Tank

It’s been four years since that night. Else and Johnny reunite with Cleo and Eddie at Black Lake. But when innocent assumptions become scalding questions, and every recollection a wounding taunt, that promises a hidden clue, they wrestle with just how little they know about their children. Acclaimed German playwright Dea Loher weaves an eerie tale of uncertainty and distortion through small gestures of everyday life, the cost of relationships and the variability of memory.


Featuring Heather Benton*, Chris J. Cancel-Pomales, * Darrell Stokes* and April Sweeney*

*Necessary Digression is an itinerant, international performance collective, a constellation of artists who cultivate and curate intentional & accidental performative experiences that invite audiences to wrestle with difficult and inspiring material. We mine the contradictions of human experience, chase and illuminate the elusive through physical expression and find new ways of reaching spectators through live theatre and performance in unexpected environments.The collective is committed to inclusivity, community and supportive strategies to encourage and develop artists and their work.
