Part of the Ruth Easton New Works Series, playwright Gabrielle Reisman and I are continuing to songify this new play with music. To quote, Gab: “What's a musical? I'm not sure. But JEUNE TERRE has glittery pop-inspired songs about climate change and historical mis-memory and singing songs in the Minneapolis winter should be a bunch of fun.”
The waters are rising around Jeune Terre, Louisiana, and the land is slipping away. As scientists and state administrators bargain over the town’s future, a theatre troupe arrives to tell an old story in a new way, just in time for a quickly approaching storm. This inventive new play with songs explores what it means to live on the edge of invisibility in a time of atmospheric change.
