Finalist in Playwrights First’s (NYC) annual playwriting contest and chosen for Penobscot Theatre’s Northern Writes New Play Festival.
A mother and teenage daughter, two victims of a horrific car accident in which a girl died, have moved out of state away from the tragedy and built a new, wonderful life together. An investigative writer finds them and terrorizes them until a much darker story and truth about the accident are revealed.
Aftershock explores the extraordinary methods victims of tragedies employ to live in the world of non-victims. When friends and family are faced with the death of a child, how are they supposed to go on? What if it wasn’t your daughter but her best friend who died? Are you as consumed with guilt as you are with grief? What will it take to live a “normal” life. Can you run away and begin again?
