Water & Power is modern noir. What emerges from the long shadows of a rainy night is as mysterious as what will never see the light of day. Who is the Power behind the Power? How does Water flow in a desert? Who controls the streets, cops, gangs or gangsters in suits and ties? Nothing is concrete in L.A. except the river.

The Ted Schmitt Award

WINNER! 2006 Ted Schmitt Award presented by the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle for the world premiere of an outstanding new play.

A hard working immigrant father wants better for his sons, twins named Water and Power. He wants them to be like Mr. Mullholand – deciding where the water flows in this desert pueblo. From the Mother Ditch in Chinatown, to the arroyos and ravines that would become Dodgers Stadium, L.A. re-invents herself faster than a Hollywood soundstage. History is cemented over and stars fade in a blaze of glory, but Water and Power will always be remembered -- all will know how the eastside rolls! Everything the brothers stand for hangs in the balance as they meet in room #13 at the Motel Paradise on the eastern edge of Sunset Boulevard. That's a part of the boulevard you never want to find yourself in on a dark and rainy night. L.A.'s not for everybody...

REVIEWS 

"Admirers of the group's unique blend of Chicano-inflected, spoken-word-erupting performance art needn't worry that they've lost sight of their signature gifts. "Water & Power" daringly tries to bundle these elements into a theatrical experience that veers inevitably toward tragedy." - The Los Angeles Times, Read More 


Originally performed by the award-winning Chicano/Latino performance troupe Culture Clash at the Center Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum in July 2006 under the direction of Lisa Peterson.
