Sedna is worried. Even though her settlement has strict rules about wasting water, their water supply has gotten dangerously low. Not one to sit by idly when there is a problem that needs solving, Sedna sets out with her divining rod (magic water finding stick) and best friend, Nix, to find a new water source. Along the way they encounter more than they expected and discover that there’s a whole lot more to water than they ever realized.
The Water Chronicles is a playful examination of our relationship with water and the impact this has on our environment. It asks questions: Who owns water? What happens when we don’t respect water? How can we make a difference in avoiding the very real possibility of a water crisis? In an imaginative and fun way, the play explores the many ways that water impacts our lives and how small changes (and small kids!) and can make a big difference.
