Elemeno Pea

  • by Molly Smith Metzler
  • directed by Brian Balcom
  • Labor Day has come and gone on Martha’s Vineyard when Devon arrives to visit her sister Simone at her place of employment: a grand estate on the island. When Simone’s wealthy employer reappears in the midst of a marital crisis, the weekend is thrown into chaos. The conflict pits family against money in this struggle between the haves and the have-nots.

    Waves crash and sisters clash in this tumultuous comedy about the sacrifices we make to stay on top. Directed by Brian Balcom, MFA Class of 2016.

    How do wealth and privilege affect how we treat one another?
