There's nothing worse than family...and nothing better. Miranda has done everything in her power to create a life completely different than the one she came from. But a week before a family celebration, Miranda suffers a lapse of judgment and invites her deliciously eccentric and overbearing mother to come stay. With all the kin in one place, will they all stay in one piece? This heartfelt and hilarious world premiere is about a family of very funny people in the midst of loss, love, and forgiveness.

“Sharyn Rothstein’s By the Water is a solid play about a dissolving world. This Superstorm drama is A FORCE OF NATURE.” – Time Out New York on By the Water

“An affecting new play drawn with acute sympathy and in gritty detail, seasoned with salty humor.” – New York Times on Sharyn Rothstein’s By the Water
