The UCSB Department of Theater and Dance is proud to present a LAUNCH PAD preview production of What Martha Did. The preview production runs November 15 - 24 in the UCSB's Performing Arts Theater.

Written by Enid Graham and directed by Risa Brainin, What Martha Did is a darkly funny drama about regret, facing the truth, and finding forgiveness. The play kicks off with a gathering to commemorate the 25th edition of Martha Fisher's celebrated book of poems which brings her fractured family back home - all except Martha herself, who committed suicide soon after the book's original publication. Haunted by the past and events they can't explain, her family struggles to move forward. How can they reconcile the Martha who wrote so brilliantly about the joys of living and the hidden Martha who ended her own life?
