IN THE SOUNDLESS AWE
The U.S.S. Indianapolis is hit by two Japanese torpedoes, killing three-hundred sailors in the initial blast and leaving nine-hundred men to drift helplessly in the Pacific Ocean. The survivors are discovered almost five days later. When rescue ships and planes finally arrive, they witness hundreds of large shadows lurking around small groups of broken men drifting aimlessly in the current. Only three-hundred and twenty-one sailors are pulled from the blood-filled water.
IN THE SOUNDLESS AWE is a remount of the 2017 Chicago Joseph Jefferson Recommended play that takes place twenty-two years later, finding Charles Butler McVay III (film & tvs Jason Narvy), the wrongly court-martialed and disgraced Captain of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, in his haunting final moments.
