“The Water Engine,” written by David Mamet, revolves around a young inventor who creates an engine that runs entirely on water rather than gasoline or diesel fuel. It runs through the difficult and sometimes violent troubles he encounters trying to patent the device.
Originally created as a radio play, the “Water Engine” has been presented in many formats, including a television drama.
The University of Scranton Players will present the play live on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the McDade Center for Literary and Performing Arts. The play is directed by Jose Zayas.
