A famous artist invites her old friends to her luxurious new home. For one night only, the group is back together. But celebrations come to an abrupt end when the host suffers an horrific accident. As the victim lies in a coma, an almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be their next work of art? Pool (No Water) is a visceral and shocking new play about the fragility of friendship and the jealousy and resentment inspired by success. 

REVIEWS

"Mr. Ravenhill’s writing has a hypnotic beauty itself, as the locked chambers of each of the character’s minds are slowly exposed... The play is full of perceptive commentary on the tension between affection and antipathy among friends — and the interior tensions in the individual soul between self-love and self-hate." - The New York Times

"Utterly engrossing." - TheaterMania

"Ravenhill's text has a hypnotic fluidity." - British Theatre Guide


A Frantic Assembly, Drum Theatre Plymouth and Lyric Hammersmith Production, Pool (No Water) was first performed at the Drum Theatre Plymouth in September of 2006.
