Conceived with Keith Powell
Directed by Steve Cosson
Choreography by Billy Bustamante


A dark and thrilling musical ghost story.

In an eerie lighthouse on the remote coast of Maine, two lonely people face the beginning of World War II. There’s Yasuhiro, a Japanese immigrant threatened by the rising wartime xenophobia—and Lily, his employer, who’s spent her whole life here. Their world is turned upside down when Lily’s young nephew, Christopher, is sent to live with them. Soon, the boy begins to hear strange music seeping through the walls. Is his imagination getting the better of him? Or are there ghosts here and maybe dangerous ones at that? What happens next will change the lives of these three characters forever...  

Written by Grammy and Tony winner Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening, American Psycho) and Tony-nominated and Obie winner Kyle Jarrow (Spongebob Squarepants, The Broadway Musical; The Wildness), and directed by Steve Cosson, WHISPER HOUSE combines a lush original score with a haunting story about fear of the other and the ways we can transcend it.

The Civilians

The Civilians began in 2001 with a company of artists, led by Founding Artistic Director Steve Cosson, who were interested in making new work at the intersection of the theatrical and the real. The company has a rich history of nurturing new work by some of America’s leading playwrights and composers, and has participated in several BAM Next Wave Festivals and has been produced at major New York and regional theaters. The company supports a number of emerging and established artists each year through its R & D Program, cabaret series, and its online journal, Extended Play.
