WET is an award winning In-Yer-Face play set during the height of Canada’s involvement in the Afghanistan War. A soldier returns home from active duty abandoned by her county. She’s broken. Her husband thinks he can fix her. She can no longer be a mother. He becomes her caregiver. She wants to disappear. He wants his wife back. Their basement suite becomes a prison. A former war comrade shows up to make things better. He doesn’t.
Winner of the Herman Voaden National Playwriting Competition, WET is a provocative examination of poverty, mental illness and the military industrial complex. Presented in ITSAZOO’s trademark immersive style, WET unfolds mere inches from intimately-sized audiences of 28 people per show.
