Pool (No Water)

– 10…9…8… Productions

10…9…8… Productions presents the Manitoban premiere of Pool (No Water), Mark Ravenhill’s visceral and shocking play about art, jealousy, and how far we are willing to go to achieve success.

A famous artist invites her old friends to her luxurious home and new swimming pool. For one night, the group is back together, pretending to be bohemian and carefree. But a horrific accident puts an end to the nostalgia, and begins a collective desire to claim and exploit. In the wake of tragedy, who gets to tell the story?

  1. Dive in, the water is fine!A well dirrected and performed full play that goes deep.A look at some shallow aspects of art and human nature.

  2. One word: beautiful, beautiful work from everyone from this production. The cast were so in sync, its scary to even think how much work they put in it, and for that, I admire them as an artist myself, their level of stage presence on stage is something any performer should strive for. BIG applause to the director, all of the level for their physical movement were breathtaking, it keeps me on the edge of my seat, in a good way of course. And the stage manager, none of the cues went wrong, the professionalism is just… wow. Come see this show, they deserve sold out shows and more than that!

  7. Who hasn’t felt secretly pleased when someone rich and famous takes a fall? But when it’s your friend, maybe that’s not so nice!
    These 6 actors are a great ensemble who all give excellent performances. The timing and choreography is spot on and the pace of the play keeps you enthralled and gets you thinking. I didn’t look at my watch once which is very unusual for me!
    I highly recommend you go see it. 4.5 stars
