Kendra returns to her childhood home on Martha’s Vineyard upon learning her brother has died in a terrible accident. While searching for the truth about his passing, she finds herself tormented by a childhood ghost story. As the mystery behind his death is unraveled, she discovers that he was drowning in much more than water. The ghost story, paired with her grief, begins to impact her relationship with her family and to the ocean itself.
Part of New Light Theater Project’s 2022 New Light New Voices Fall Festival, INK'DWELL is a poetic look at grief and how love lives on.
This play explores themes of mental health and depression and talks about death and suicide.
If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or has suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
