Wanda, Daisy and the Great Rapture
May 17 – June 9
Obsidian Theater – 3522 White Oak Dr.
Written by Alexis Schaetzle and directed by David Rainey.
Details: It’s a sticky hot summer in the swamplands of Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. Step-sisters Wanda and Daisy struggle to get by as the people they love disappear; Wanda’s mother has recently died, and Daisy’s father is fading away as his Alzheimer’s worsens, and his obsession with an impending rapture intensifies. The girls summon dark memories as they try to repair their fractured relationship and find a little light. A magical story about how we hold onto family, the past, and ourselves while we seek better lives, and wait patiently as the Great Rapture hails us–or doesn’t.
