Lost Limbs: A New Play by Maya Parish

Lost Limbs: A New Play by Maya Parish A World Premiere Drama: April 20th through May 13th, 2012

What if your greatest loss led you to your greatest love? After experiencing the sudden loss of a loved one, two people’s understanding of the world as they know it is shattered and they are both forced to lose everything in order to find themselves again. A gripping character-driven piece, Lost Limbs follows two intertwining lives in the two farthest flung United States. The man, a boat builder in Alaska, and the woman, an academic-turned-gardener in Hawaii, recount their life stories and how it is only by setting out to sea that their paths finally cross, in the middle of the South Pacific. A mix of poetry, confessional, and multi-media projections, Lost Limbs is a bold new play that reminds us that plunging into the depths of life’s despair can be the first step toward reaching its greatest joys.

Some excerpts from Lost Limbs' first review from LA Splash Magazine!

Lost Limbs is a deeply lyrical, dual monologue piece, recounting the stories of two people who lost a loved one in the prime of their relationships. This show is for people who love language. Parish and Williams are rimming with intensity, passion and melancholy, which makes for quite engaging performances. Also, the performers handled the occasional overlapping stream of thought quite well, making it feel organic and co-incidental. The piece itself is staged as a synchronized dance between Isaac and Steady, infused with its deliberate syncopation in the language. Director Christopher Hall echoes that particular eccentricity in his staging, [which] works to convey the constant presence of the ocean and the sea that inhabits the stories and the characters. Lost Limbs dares to assert that from great loss can come even greater reward and self-awareness; I applaud the optimism of that message. Kudos to Parish for being judicious and succinct in the story she has lovingly crafted.
