“Edgar & Annabel” by Sam Holcroft  
Directed by Emily Gregory ’10

“Life Under Water” by Richard Greenberg

Directed by Francesca Sparaco ’16

Life Under Water tells the story of the bourgeoisie life of three college age kids, and their older counterparts on summer vacation. These five people vacation in the Hamptons and reside in their lavish oceanfront villas before returning to the city for the fall. The play brings to life the ideas of upper middle sophistication, decadence, and a high level of self-indulgence in all things material and interpersonal.
