Description

Clementine in the Lower 9

By Dan Dietz

Music by Justin Ellington

Directed by Leah C. Gardiner 

Rebuilding a house, a love, a family, and a soul is the task of this powerfully human drama set in post-Katrina New Orleans. Here the legacy of the past haunts the realities of the present. Here the bluesy sounds of an onstage jazz band accompany a musician and his wife as they struggle to reconnect the electricity, the plumbing, and the relationships devastated by the flood of a lifetime.
