A fighter pilot's unexpected pregnancy leads to a reassignment to operating drones from a windowless trailer outside Vegas and a life of tracking a high-profile target during the day and returning home to hear family each night. As the pressure mounts, the boundaries blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away.

Capsized follows six young girls living in luxury off the coast of St. Thomas. These teenagers have nothing in common but the repeated physical and psychological trauma they endure from visitors to the private island.

A note from our Director of Development:
Dear family, fellow artists, friends, and friends we haven't met yet,
We're excited to let you know that Houselight has received a two week residency at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center, during which we'll be workshopping and exploring the writing of María Irene Fornés. Some of you saw Jayne McLendon, Matt Lytle, and Jack Dwyer in Mauricio Salgado's production of María Irene Fornés' Mud during the Brown/Trinity program's 2017 spring season. Several months later, we found ourselves missing each other, Irene's words, and the dynamic energy of Mauricio's rehearsal room. Beginning this November, we will be doing a preliminary workshop through a residency at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center--exploring ways to deepen and expand our relationship with Fornes' work, and preparing to present our work to potential producers and festivals for a future full production! We're thrilled to be getting back together, to have a space to play in for two weeks, and to make an attempt to honor María Irene Fornés' writing.
