ITSAZOO is proud to present a staged reading of David James Brock’s provocative, award winning drama, WET. Presented by the rEvolver Theatre Festival, this is a fantastic opportunity to see a work in progress and participate in a post reading discussion to help us further develop this intense, riveting new play.
WET tells the story of three soldiers stuck in a war they need. Burns and her husband Sweetie, abandoned by everyone but each other, enlist in the Canadian Army believing it’s their only chance at securing a future for their newborn daughter. However, she is deemed fit to serve and he isn’t. She fights the war while he stays home. She returns with a head injury and he becomes her caregiver. Once again, they have been abandoned, only this time by the Canadian Army. Then, Captain Tom Fitzgerald arrives. Tom has PTSD. Tom needs Burns. And Tom loves war.
David James Brock is an award winning playwright, poet, and librettist. He won the Herman Voaden National Playwriting Award (2011) for WET which was then further developed at the Banff Centre’s Playwright’s Colony.
