World Premiere Of 'How Water Behaves' At TheRep


  It all begins when sweet Nan and her out-of-work webmaster hubby, Steve, realize they can't afford to keep up the extravagant gift giving that has become their family's tradition. In an effort to make everyone happy, they announce that they have made a gift to a charity in everyone's name. Except it's a fictitious charity. No problem — until the website that Steve creates to seal the deal becomes prey to cyberspace hijinks, with deliciously funny and unpredictable results.

This is the plot of the play How Water Behaves by Sherry Kramer – the world premiere of which is currently running at Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, NY. The show is directed by acclaimed theatre director Gordon Greenberg and co-stars Nisi Sturgis as Nan and Michael McCorry Rose as Hank.
