Son of Semele presents the world premiere of

PLUNGE
directed by Matthew McCray

Los Angeles, 1918.

As Everett Maxwell prepares to launch the new Otis Art Institute, he has a chance encounter with priest Edward Reynolds, freshly arrived in the city. Sensing a shared affinity for art (and, perhaps… other things) Maxwell suggests an evening at Bimini Baths, a popular hot spring resort on Vermont Avenue at the end of the Heliotrope streetcar line.

There, over a course of salubrious treatments administered (to the priest’s chagrin) by attendants of color, Father Reynolds reveals the horrifying secret that has him on the verge of suicide.

But whose secret is it? The quest for the truth leads Maxwell on a surreal journey through a dark night of the soul — a soul that may never come clean.
