Too Much Water follows Ophelia's ghost as she revisits Elsinore, guided by other famous suicides like Meriwether Lewis, Seneca, and Virginia Woolf. Combining found text, transcriptions of interviews with contemporary young women, and highly theatrical movement, Too Much Water explores the lives of "good girls," the social taboos of madness, and the repercussions and reverberations of suicide.
