buried in Prosperity

buried in Prosperity

A stranger arrives in a dying farm town with proof that a century-old legend of buried treasure is real. Suddenly neighbors, friends, and enemies are thrown into a struggle of identity and a quest for the meaning of "home." As John Perdu fights to return to his wife, the citizens of Prosperity face an impossible choice; destroy the heart of their community, or preserve the only family they've ever known.

buried in Prosperity is a single set, small cast (7) musical in development and will receive primary table readings in December 2015. Selections were presented at the ASCAP/Chicago Dramatists 4th Cabaret of New Musical Works and featured in a master class with Tony Award nominee Andrew Lippa through the Dramatists Guild Traveling Masters Program.
