OBERON Shows, Special events
October 15 - October 18, 2014
"Full of perceptive commentary on the tension between affection and antipathy among friends — and the interior tensions in the individual soul between self-love and self-hate."
The New York Times

By Mark Ravenhill

Directed by Ianthe Demos
Choreographed by Natalie Lomonte


One Year Lease Theater Company presents pool (no water), a visceral play about the fragility of friendship and the jealousy inspired by success. A famous artist invites old friends to her new home for a long awaited reunion. But the celebration comes to an abrupt end when the host suffers a horrific accident. An almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be the group’s next work of art? This is an unflinching look at the vulnerability of friendship, the power of resentment, and a deep-seated yearning to create something truly memorable.

This 60-minute descent into self-delusion offers a haunting and occasionally humorous window into the lengths people might be willing to go in pursuit of fame. More

The degree of difficulty in the style of the play, both in terms of Ravenhill’s writing and the performers’ agility, is engagingly high. ... Anytime A.R.T. or anyone else wants to bring Ravenill or One Year Lease Theater Company back, I’m there. More

Any resemblance between the struggling visual artists in the play and the people who make small-company theater is, well, not entirely coincidental. More
