The play on which this telefilm is based, also titled Life Under Water, premiered Off-Broadway at the Ensemble Studio Theatre in May 1985. Directed by Don Scardino, the cast featured Alexa Kenin (Amy-Joy), Amanda Plummer (Amy-Beth), Andrew McCarthy (Kip), Jill Eikenberry (Jinx), and Larry Bryggman (Hank). The play takes place in the summer on Long Island's South Fork.
20 year old Kip moves out of his mother's home in the Hamptons, Long Island. His divorced mother, Jinx, is having an affair with Hank. Kip meets 2 young women on the beach -- Amy-Beth and Amy-Joy. Amy-Joy insists that sea-monsters are real; Amy Beth has had a nervous breakdown. Both are selfishly preoccupied with their own lives.
