The Santa Ana


Crossed Wires (UK)

Is a strong wind all it takes to tip people over the edge? This multimedia thriller is inspired by Joan Didion’s essay on the Santa Ana. A multiplicity of characters are thrown into turmoil by these winds, from an oil magnate in fated pursuit of profit to a disaffected wife with murderous desires. As suicide rates increase and forest fires rage, this new play explores the simultaneous parallel decay of our environment and our mental health. Live videography and electronic score accompany this descent into disorder, as tensions rise to a climactic sensory and emotional overspill.
