All Well is a sound-installation that will envelop audiences in the pitch black of an icebound ship, midwinter. All Well will travel through the hidden spaces of the Imago theatre, on a journey inspired by the doomed Franklin Expedition of 1845-48. Directed by Jacob Coleman and featuring an immersive soundscape by PETE’s resident sound designer Mark Valadez, All Well will submerge audiences in the darkness of the lost explorer, far from home. Each performance of All Well is limited to 25 audience members, each of whom experience All Well from the comfort of their own hammock. All Well was produced as a part of Third Rail Rep's Wild Card series and is the second part of PETE’s The Journey Play Is The Whole Thing: A Constellation Of Art Events, Objects and Experience.


This is not a play - this is an experience, one you’re not likely to forget.

-The Oregonian on PETE’s All Well


PETE has done an incredible job of capturing what it must feel like to be lost at sea ... Rocking in your hammock in complete darkness with people on both sides, it’s a very small leap to imagine yourself in the bowels of the ship, effectively blind and in close quarters with your fellow shipmates. It’s intense. Then when it’s over and you are back on solid, non-frozen ground and breathing non-salty air, everything seems a little strange.
