Then, we made our way over to the Custom Made Theatre for opening night of the world premiere of Rachel Bublitz’s “Of Serpents and Sea Spray“, a play about the strange and heroic journey of a girl, tormented by the loss of her parents, who eventually manages to make sense of her life (directed by Ariel Craft).
