PROMISE

by Emilie Collyer

In a small country town, the river is filling with salt. A woman is missing, the air is laden with heat and silent promises. A couple arrives from the city. They become drawn into a slow dance of fantasy and denial. Promise is a play about the lure of illusion, the appeal of memory and the murky waters of waking up and moving on. Join six characters as they drift below the surface of love to explore what lies beneath. Sometimes, it takes more courage to break the seal of a promise than to slowly drown under its weight.
