Splash Hatch on the E Going Down

by Kia Corthron
Directed by Lyndsay Allyn Cox

Streaming April 19-25, 2021

Thyme is fifteen, a straight A student, and three months pregnant. Her husband Erry is eighteen, works in construction. They plan for their future in the bedroom of her parents’ Harlem apartment, where they live. As Erry’s health begins to deteriorate from occupational lead inhalation, Thyme is strangely oblivious, instead intensely focused on the growing fetus inside her – giving birth in water (a “Splash Hatch”) – and becoming fascinated with urban politics and environmental racism. Playwright Kia Corthron has been praised for her poetic language and vivid characters grappling with one of the great existential threats of our time.
