Mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved...Samantha Brown balances on the edge of her future, car keys in hand. As she sits in the driver's seat, she faces a choice: will she follow in her mother's footsteps, or take the dare of her impetuous best friend and chart a new path? This contemporary and compelling score from one of NYC's most exciting new songwriting teams immerses audiences in the complex inner life of a young woman on the brink of change. When every choice feels like life and death, how do you turn the key?
"If Kerrigan and Lowdermilk aren't the best young songwriting team in the country, they're right up there with other candidates - as is implied by the many awards they've already gathered (2006 Jonathan Larson Award, a Richard Rodgers Award, Kerrigan's 2009 Kleban Award for Most Promising Librettist)."
