Everybody gets wet in Abi Basch’s “Voices Underwater,” a lyrical ghost story involving a flood tide of Civil War history. A young couple — white woman, black man — arrive late one rainy night to visit a creepy old Alabama plantation house that’s been in her family. You bet it’s haunted.
The sound of falling rain rarely slacks off in Jenny McConnell Frederick’s wonderfully moody production, which envelops the audience in classic haunted-house style.

“Rorschach hasn’t lost its immersive touch. Director Jenny McConnell Frederick effectively uses visuals and sound to make the audience feel as trapped and claustrophobic as play’s characters do — rain slips through the rafters, spirits creep around corners unexpectedly, and there’s a real sense of danger to the production.”

“In full Rorschach mode, the production immerses the audience into the setting to feel you’re actually in an old stuffy attic filled to the brim with treasures from long ago. The water seems at the door, literally, thanks to the sound and light wizardry of Nicole Martin and Andrew F. Griffin who create the look and sound of buckets of rain and tantalizing shadows of the spirits, all under the watchful eye of director Jenny McConnell Frederick who does wonders with the intimate attic-like space and brings an immediacy to all the characters.”
