The Water Saga is a series of plays that will be devised by The In[HEIR]itance Project in communities who have compelling relationships with water due to proximity, flood, drought, etc. Each process will pair these communities’ narratives with inherited water-related texts. The series kicks off in 2019 with a play in Palm Beach, Florida. Play #2 will be created in 2021 in Orange County, CA. In preparation for the 2021 project, In[HEIR]itance artists will be facilitating a week of collaborative community workshops in Orange County in February of 2020.
