In this moving and powerful ensemble piece, a police detective investigates the mysterious death of a young Mexican actress in a bathtub. She has been making a film about a girl who dies in a bathtub, directed by a beautiful and charismatic but troubled Russian woman who seems to have cast a spell on the others involved: a cynical, womanizing British screenwriter who wants desperately to sleep with her, a frustrated Irish actress, and a sardonic Italian assistant director. Was it an accident, suicide or murder? As the detective gets pulled deeper and deeper into the complex and passionate world of these people, he finds himself becoming obsessed both with the dead girl in the tub and the Russian director who might be her killer. The play moves back and forth in time and space as the detective begins putting the pieces of the puzzle together. But what is reality, and what is just a movie? The deeper in he goes, the more haunting the puzzle. Is he in a movie, too? Theatre, film noir and dream combine to pull us into the maelstrom with him.
"Nigro’s language is beautiful. The dialogue flows, layers, and overlaps creating a dramatic poetry that washes over the audience. The eccentric characters are distinct and fully realized." - Theasy.com, Read More
