Holding it together takes on unexpected meaning in Charly Evon Simpson's sandblasted, an offbeat and intriguing play about self-preservation, survival, and sisterhood that's streaked with humor even when the going gets rough. Really rough.That includes when a woman's arm falls off and lands with a disconcerting thud on the ground. Better, on the sand. There's a pile of it on stage at Vineyard Theatre, where the show's setting could be a beach or a desert beneath a sky flecked with fluffy clouds....
sandblasted is at Vineyard Theatre in 2022. Details on sandblasted tickets in New York are on sale soon.
Angela and Odessa are on a sandy search for something that might not be real but they are determined to make a way out of no way.

Williams in her New York City Debut.
