Everybody Drinks The Same Water

Posted: Updated:

Muslims, Christians and Jews! Oh, my! In the bold new play premiering this weekend at the Miami Theater Center, the boundaries of tolerance are challenged as a murder mystery unfolds. Grab a glass, because everybody drinks the same water.

Tolerance and bigotry takes center stage at the Miami Theater Center with the world premiere of the daring new play, "Everybody Drinks The Same Water."

Stephanie Ansin: "It's definitely political. It's emotional. It's about looking inside yourself to see how you really are when circumstances are tense."

And it does get tense. The play is set In 1236 in the city of Cordoba, Spain, home to Muslims, Christians and Jews. And when the city's main water supply becomes poisoned, the blame game between the people begins.

The story is fiction, but the main characters are real and based on historical figures. After ending 500 years of Muslim rule, Cordoba's new Christian king is the first to be poisoned, but soon the entire city falls victim, and the medieval murder mystery begins.

Fernando Calzadilla: "Something happened in Cordoba at that time and we need to look at it. We need to go back and find out what we can learn."

The Christian prince, a Jewish midwife and a Muslim girl then look beyond their differences, and join forces to try and solve the mystery.

In the end, the theme of the play goes way beyond tolerance and acceptance, and the real killer is at last exposed.

Howard Elfman: "Visually they are going to be blown away. It's a great story here and it's a story for everybody."

Barbara Sloan: "The fact that we're going to be able to get a conversation going with young people is going to be wonderful."

Stephanie Ansin: "We all drink the same water. We all tell the same stories."

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.
