The Ledge

by Jack Hanley

directed by Christopher Eaves


The Ledge is based upon the O. Henry Prize-winning short story written by Lawrence Sargent Hall. A fisherman is stranded with his son and nephew on a small reef exposed at low tide off the New England coast in winter. The following morning the fisherman's drowned body is dragged on to a wharf for his wife to see. From his frozen, post-corporeal being he is compelled by her eyes to relive his last hours holding the boys above the icy waters, to relive his last seconds of breath as the tide rises around his neck, to witness again his son swimming into darkness.
