When Sam Abrams first fell in love with Rose, he wrote her a song that has been recorded by every genre of singer and translated into every language. For the intervening 25 years, Sam has been looking for the creative spark that this first flush of love inspired in him. While Sam and Rose are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on a Mediterranean cruise, Sam hears the most sublime music, jumps overboard and winds up with a Siren. On her island, he struggles with middle age, creative failure and the desire to live in his past rather than face his uncertain future.
The director plans Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening rehearsals; not all actors will be needed for every rehearsal. Performances will be September 13, 14, 15 (matinee), 20, 21.
