by Victor Wishna

Ben, a struggling novelist, has lucked into the gig of a lifetime: ghostwriting a memoir for Esther Lindman, the colorful and infamously outspoken widow of one of the 20th century's greatest American artists. But when the stories don't add up, and new pressures mount at home, Ben just digs deeper, soon discovering that truth - like art - is in the eye of the beholder.

Starring Peggy Friesen, Ben Auxier, and Ellen Kirk
Directed by Shawnna Journagan

Shearwater ran at The Living Room in January of 2017, as part of our Writer's Den Series




"Like [Victor Wishna's] earlier works, Shearwater is clever: awash in natural dialogue, wit and well-drawn characters. And under the direction of Shawnna Journagan, its three cast members — Peggy Friesen, Ben Auxier and Ellen Kirk — make the story their own."
