In The Chimes (music by Liz Barnett, book and lyrics by Eloise Govedare), a married couple is aurally tormented a neighbor’s incessant and omnipresent wind chimes. They confront, redefining hard truths.
In Love in the Dark (book by Orian Israelsohn, lyrics by Emily Roller, and music by Aleksandra Weil), a young couple is carnally tormented by the constriction of their orthodox Jewish community. They reckon, reinventing truth’s malleability.
