buried in Prosperity
Prosperity, a withering farm town in the American plains, is lost to history, barely clinging to life and the faded memories of a long-lost legend. When a mysterious stranger arrives with proof their legend is true, the siren song of instant riches and a better world beyond Prosperity’s tiny borders begins to tear at the fabric of this tight-knit community. Loosely based on Homer’s Odyssey, friends and neighbors question the meaning of family and definition of ‘Home’ in a universal quest for love and belonging.
buried in Prosperity, a small cast (7) single set/single costume musical in development, was a finalist for the 2016 Rheinbeck Writers Retreat and was featured in the 2017 Kennedy Center's 16th Annual Page-to-Stage Festival by Point Park University. Selections were presented in a master class with Tony Award nominee Andrew Lippa through the Dramatists Guild Traveling Masters Program and at the ASCAP/Chicago Dramatists' Cabaret of New Musical Works .
