The S.S. Shushan (Shit Show Shushan) is a sinking yacht, where you need a ticket to ride but not all the passengers have one. When First Mate Vashti uncovers the Captain and Quartermaster’s ticket con, she jumps overboard and mobilizes an underwater resistance. Join us for a tale of golden thrones, leaks, mikvehs, and miracles. The tide is rising!

*upwelling: Something that occurs when surface waters sink to the bottom, slowly migrate across the deep oceanic basins, and rise to the surface. These waters contain nutrients from the sunken carcasses of small organisms. This surfacing thus brings nutrients to the surface, nourishing plankton, and is an important aspect of the marine food web.
