Icebergs, by Alena Smith
Directed by Debra Kent
Production dates: 11/29 – 12/15/2019
Welcome to Los Angeles, California, where the weather is always nice, and the future looks bright – mostly. We visit the trendy Silver Lake hills of L.A. on a warm November evening, on the Day of the Dead. Calder is a promising writer-director, and his wife Abigail is an actor still waiting for her big break. An old school buddy of Calder’s visits, as does his agent, and Abigail’s friend Molly – who stops over to read Tarot cards. The evening weighs in on loyalty, principles, climate trauma, carbon footprints, the fear of having children, and the fate of humankind.
