RACHEL PICKUP AND RACHEL BOTCHAN TO PERFORM READING OF NEW MICHAEL RAVER PLAY, QUIET ELECTRICITY, DIRECTED BY MELISSA RAIN ANDERSON

Melissa Rain Anderson will direct a reading of Michael Raver’s stirring new play, Quiet Electricity as part of Emerging Artists Theatre’s New Work Series.

Quiet Electricity tells the story of Jodie and Dana, a once happily married couple. Six months after tragedy has struck them, they now have little to say to one another. When the power in their Hoboken apartment building is temporarily shut off in the evenings for rewiring, they are forced to spend their nights together in the dark. A simple game of confessions unearths truths and hidden feelings, leading Jodie and Dana to epiphanies about love, sex and marriage.

“What happens when we keep secrets from our partner?” muses director Melissa Rain Anderson. “The play examines what it looks like for two people to be living under one roof, sharing one life while each person builds a private room to store their grief. As the membrane that holds them together grows thinner and thinner, how does the partnership survive?”


An O’Neill semifinalist in 2017, Quiet Electricity will feature performances from Rachel Pickup (Wonder Woman, The Globe Theatre’s The Merchant of Venice) and Rachel Botchan (The Sorceress, A Taste of Honey). Stage directions will be read by Eden Eernissee.

The reading of Quiet Electricity will be on March 6th at 7 pm at Tada Theatre in New York.
