 A WIVES' TALE

Even with the infrared I was very aware that I was alone.
— Millie from A Wives' Tale

Full-Length Steampunk Drama, One Intermission
8W, 1M

A futuristic drama about a group of barren women conspiring to create the perfect society in post-nuclear South Carolina.

It's the year 2050 on Seabrook Island, SC where almost all of its residents have been wiped out by nuclear war except for a small group of women who managed to survive—albeit now barren. As they try to rebuild their community from their fallout shelters their cloistered world is suddenly invaded by a male drifter who doesn't  just awaken their passions but pushes them to a point of no return.

A Wives' Tale examines the struggles of maintaining traditional southern values in a post-nuclear world and how patriarchal values still permeate a matriarchal system.
