IN A SEA OF FACES
IN A SEA OF FACES
A folk tale about an island that is sinking into the sea, and the family that sinks with it.
In A Sea of Faces tells the story of an isolated island community and a family who lives there. Long ago, foreign ships came to the island and introduced its people to grandiose ideas and desires, and the promise of opportunity abroad. Myth and idealism about far away places developed from the stories, and ultimately drew Jacob, the father, away from his family and home.
In A Sea of Faces is presented as an AEA Showcase featuring performances by Meghan McGeary, Andrew Lynch, Max Demers, Ashkon Davaran, Mary Kate Morrissey, Phoenix Gonzalez, Me'lissa Smith, Andrew Simon and Elias Wygodny and an incredible six-piece band.
