'I wish there was something else, but there was... the excitement that all of us deny. Because excitement is not – no, not an appropriate response.'

Four artists are invited to their most famous friend's house, after ten years apart, for a night of reminiscing and celebration. However, celebration soon turns into horror, when the host suffers a horrifying accident. Soon placed into in a coma, the group battle with an intense array of emotions; the suppressed resentment, the duty to care for a friend, and how just maybe, their 'friend's' suffering could be their next work of art.

'pool (no water)' a visceral and shocking play about the fragility of friendship and the jealousy and resentment inspired by success.
