Created by a diverse team of playwrights, directors and actors, the production features original work by CPT and co-producers Theater Ninjas, Talespinner Children's Theatre, Ohio City Theatre Project and Blank Canvas Theatre, woven into a powerful theatrical event that explores how the environment shapes identity, while celebrating the remarkable recovery of Cleveland's waterways.
