Project Description

“We’re all looking for higher ground.”



In a world of magical realism and rising water, two sisters are reunited at their family home. Mira, the caretaker sister, had to weather her mother’s death alone, and holds every childhood slight so close that she is literally burning from the inside out, shedding ashes and embers, as her wife, Amanda attempts to soothe her. Sister Deedee has returned to bring her fiancee, Pike, to safety, even as her memory is vanishing faster and faster. In this slowly drowning world, everyone is searching for higher ground. The sisters battle to the end, one unable to forget, the other unable to remember. Mox Nox is a play of lyrical magic and visual surprise, with characters who desperately need love and dry land.

Mox Nox runs approximately 90 minutes without an intermission. Outdoor performances will begin at 8:30pm. Indoor performances will be gin at 7:30pm. Performances lat outdoor venues are free and open to all audiences; no tickets are needed. Lawn seating, blankets, and lawn chairs welcome. Ticket links for our Ocean City Indoor performances can be found below.
