“I will die without saying these things...”
When a young couple enters an ominous plantation home in Alabama, they are confounded by a deluge of their ancestor’s past. A regional premiere by former Austin playwright Abi Basch, Voices Underwater dives into the ebb and flows of our country’s deep history of prejudice. A chillingly beautiful play, Voices Underwater confronts the ghosts of our past and wades through the depths of haunted hearts.
“Salvage Vanguard Theater’s Voices Underwater is a sublime mix of the physical, mental and emotional. … It’s full of esoteric discussions about humanity and history, but also incredible bursts of passion.”
— Joey Seiler, Austin American Statesman
