by Melanie Marnich


“I’m here because I’m dreaming of a killer. She chews up my sleep. She injects me with ideas. She shows angry muscle. Is she invading—or am I calling? I do what she says and she says keep going.”

In Melanie Marnich’s play Quake, time and emotion pass in a warped instant. Lucy crosses state lines and fault lines, exploring the geography of the human heart on a quest for the ‘big love’. Her journey is intertwined with that of an astrophysicist turned serial killer. This play evokes questions about self-exploration, toxic masculinity, sexuality, intimacy, platonic relationships, and the dangers of idyllic love.
