ABOUT THE PLAY:
"In the far future, a group of women have spent their lives on an island waiting for the last man on earth - the Rowboat Man - to row to shore and help restart the human race. After the desperate urges from their mother however, Lorelei and Eloise must steal the man's boat and escape the island and their duty. Waiting on the beach, the two question their roles as women, reproductive rights and the consequences of climate change.
A mixture of Regency romance and feminist dystopia, the play takes place an hour before the sun sets, when the water is calm and the sky is pink and blue."
ELOISE (she/her) 20s, any ethnicity - lives in a fantasy world and only comes out when she has to, Lorelei's younger sister
LORELEI (she/her) 20s, POC - lives in a logical and cynical world but leaves now and then, Eloise's older sister
