BLOOD WATER by Joe Musso

New Play Development Series Staged Readings

A local preacher prophesies the coming of Hurricane Katrina to New Orleans as a punishment for the city's sins. A local stripper, the main target of the Prophet's wrath, begs her husband Rod (a fencer of stolen goods) to avenge her. When Rod dismisses her plea, Greta (with the aid of Rod's lackey) captures the Prophet herself right before the storm hits the city. Surrounded by blood, water and devastation, another storm brews inside as the Prophet becomes a pawn in a deadly power game of right and wrong-good vs. evil.
