Lit Between the Ears and Two Plus Plus Productions are proud to present SIEGE AT SORREL RIFT by Veronica Paulina and starring Jason Downs and Lori Wilner.
SIEGE is about the passion between newlyweds Kaden Blood and Catherine Cobalt Blood. It is also about their two children, Elizabeth and Nathan, and the family they begin at Sorrel Rift.
However, when Kaden and Catherine’s intense desires become a bitter divorce, and Sorrel Rift is figuratively split apart, their family, and all four lives are in danger.
Episode One – Recap
Episode One introduced Kaden and Catherine Blood in their home at Sorrel Rift.
Episode Two – Recap
This episode opened with Kaden Blood speaking to the readers of The Ex-Press, his magazine for divorced mothers and fathers. The episode ended with The Narrator’s foreboding words for Lizzie and Nathan.
Episode Three – Recap
This episode spanned Kaden recalling the love he felt for Catherine on their wedding day and ended with Lizzie rallying The Rifts – the nickname for other children whose parents are going through bitter divorces.
Episode Four – Recap
The Rifts escaped their homes and joined together. When Kaden and Catherine and thousands of other parents followed their children to the nation’s capital to claim them, The Rifts took over a pleasure-ride boat, the Riverboat Queen, and headed away from land.
Episode Five – Recap
Kaden and Catherine ran along the bank following the Riverboat Queen. They hoped to keep the boat in sight and hoped it could stay afloat. But the Riverboat capsized and many Rifts perished. Lizzie died in the accident and Nathan was maimed.
And now, Episode Six
The Rifts are triumphant in their cause and celebrate throughout the land:
From the western sky like rolling thunder
Across this vast land to its opposite
Up high and down low to the infinite
Above and below, over and under
Everyone everywhere torn asunder
Children escaping from their parents’ split
As The Rifts celebrate their manumit
We–you and me–must worry and wonder.”
For Kaden and Catherine, “The Bloods’ tale ends where it once did begin // Kaden and Catherine in their hearts’ redoubt”.
But Nathan carries on in Lizzie’s absence:
Nathan raises his arm then stops to kneel
The crowd stills in his presence and fame
He speaks of Lizzie, of her drive and zeal
Takes out the paper for which they all came
To their constitution, their pact and seal
With trembling hand, Nathan Blood signs his name.”
