This is a play about loss; about those who left and those who will never return, prompted by the unexpected encounter between an actress who is out of work and a young man with his girlfriend. The young man – having an ulterior motive – offers a one-night accommodation to the errant actress, in the house of an elderly lady where he himself rents a room.
This one night will lead to cohabitation for one month, in this bizarre house where "it blows a little". Time flies, from one moon to another. August.
From the depths of time, a woman’s heart haunted by love demands the truth. The Myth and the murders. Illusion and reality. The Theatre and his demons. Illegal connections, pills, alcohol and ineffective beginnings compose a landscape within which extreme psychic effects are reflected.
Wagon in the Water could be all of them, but it could simply be a dream; its essence comprised of dream elements:
People close to us, forever gone, that suddenly take the form of a stranger; the feel of an ended relationship; scattered, random words; places we have never visited; the voice that cannot be heard; the obsessive repetition of something determined, in agonizing variations; but also, the magical glow of a single moment, when the soul is full of desires and the feeling omnipotent.
