Michaelmas Week 2
A new world calls across the rehearsal room…
From the creator of 'Parade' and 'The Last Five Years' comes a stunning, usually abstract song cycle, revolving entirely around how one decisive moment can propel the subject into a new world. It is 2013, and a day's rehearsal at the theatre is coming to an end. But while the actors may want to call it a day, some stories just will not be kept from being told. What starts as the creative exploration of new worlds, accessed by the simple power of imagination, soon takes hold as the lines between actor and character merge. From the deck of a Spanish sailing ship, to the bustling streets of New York, to the depths of the North Pole - the stories may be varied; they may shock and surprise; but the decisions to be made about love, life and liberty touch us all.
