CLEMENTINE IN THE LOWER 9
by Dan Dietz
directed by Derek Goldman
When Hurricane Katrina tore through New Orleans, Clementine’s family scattered to the winds. Nine months later, they are reunited and anxious to rebuild -- but a new storm is brewing. Her husband has arrived from Houston with a strange young girl, who just may be a prophet, and the ghosts of those lost are awakening. Set to the jazz and blues of the Lower Ninth Ward, this modern retelling of Agamemnon delves into the agony and hope that come after the storm.
