March 13 @ 7:30 pm - March 17 @ 9:30 pm

The Villains Theatre is thrilled the announce the world premiere of Deepwater, written by Dan Bray and directed by Burgandy Code! This dark, original mystery takes place at the Bus Stop Theatre Cooperative March 13-17, 2024.
Set in the rural Hants County, Nova Scotia, Deepwater follows police inspector Questa as she investigates a strange and inexplicable tragedy involving May – a reclusive marine biologist – and her young daughter. At its core, this new work questions the unknowable nature of life and relationships as two mothers strive to navigate a world so bizarre that it gives us creatures like the octopus – brilliant, yet deceptive – as well as the anglerfish – forsaken, yet misunderstood. Through this raw, challenging, and hopeful story, Deepwater explores the various ways that we – like much deep-sea life – must create our own light when we feel the most lost.
