The Troubled Water premiered at Five Towns College in Dix Hills, NY on Thursday March 2nd, 2023. The cast consists of the wonderful BFA students of FTC Theatre Arts. 


The Troubled Water was written as a reminder to persevere, even when the world is stacked against you, and you feel like no one is on your side. It’s a play about a group of college kids who are forced to grow up now because time won't wait for them to learn at their own pace. They must learn to navigate the trials and tribulations of being a young adult, while dealing with the consequences of their actions. The piece focuses on the external and internal struggles of these humans as they navigate love and loss, during a wild college party. This ensemble of immature young adults (mixed with friends, enemies, and strangers) learn that maturity is a reward for surviving continuous moments of stupidity. 


So, "why THIS play now?"  Because it's a reminder that the water NEVER settles, for any of us. We constantly must wade through, and we get to choose how. We can do it with honor or disgrace. With teamwork or isolation. With confidence or with desperation. But no matter how you choose to do it... just know that you're gonna stay afloat.
