It's not often you hear about a play based on an environmental disaster. But playwright Caridad Svich has done just that. It's called "The Way of Water," and was timed to mark the two-year anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill.  The play looks at the spill's effects on human health and the environment from the viewpoint of two affected families.  WUSF's Steve Newborn talks about the play with Svitch.

American Stage Theatre will be hosting a reading at 8 p.m.  April 28th at 163 Third St. N. in  downtown St. Petersburg.

Tickets are “Pay-What-You-Can” (Suggested donation $10-$20) or $15.00 advance purchase. Call 727.823.PLAY or Visit americanstage.org.
