Kevin O'Rourke and Bella Merlin, who portray Moss and Avis in Lee Blessing's "A Body of Water," stand on a wooden deck in front of a well-appointed house. O'Rourke is in a green robe and slippers, holding a cup of coffee, and gesturing with one hand, while Merlin, in a blue floral robe and sandals, also holds a coffee cup.
