A city is battling a record-breaking heat wave for several days when the power goes out for twelve hours. What follows is a mosaic of deprivation, fear, humor, survival, and reflection in over 50 mini-plays featuring 100 characters, from the author of Successors, the Aces Trilogy, Blizzard '67, and the music and lyrics of The Next Thing and The Teapot Scandals. Devils' Day Off was a finalist award winner in the 2013 Clubbed Thumb Biennial Commission.
With her father away at war, the indomitable Jo March tucks herself away in the attic and begins writing a joyful and heartbreaking coming of age story while drawing inspiration from her colorful family, including her loving mother and three memorable sisters. Directed by Northwestern faculty emeritus, Dominic Missimi (The Waa Mu Show, Rent), Louisa May Alcott's famous novel is reimagined in this lush musical featuring a powerful score soaring with the sounds of personal discovery, tragedy and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice and one family's astonishing journey to love and acceptance.
