A Maritime Quest for Truth
A new play by Christina Anderson
Directed by Lucie Tiberghien
Ship’s Log: 1896. A father boards a ship and leads a mysterious expedition bound for Africa. In tow are his troubled son, a rebellious young woman, and a skeptical crew. On the open sea, an unexpected detour resurrects family secrets and reveals true intentions, fundamentally changing the course of the journey—and their lives. Christina Anderson creates a telling parable about violence, betrayal, faith, and freedom in this moving maritime epic.
“Hope damages us…It weakens one of the most powerful tools we humans possess: doubt. When we doubt, we question, then we seek answers.”
