It's a play packed full of drama and human emotion. (not for the light-hearted). but the acting is superb and the theme is poignant and relevant. Attend this if you want to be touched and get a view inside the family dramas brought on by...continued

This is still a work in progress. Individual fine (if not outstanding) performances. I need the show to be believable - and as the author mentions in the liner notes.. he is striving for that too. You'll need to decide how much you can believe.

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.
