New Works Initiative #5 – When We’re Gone

Original Show Description
When We’re Gone
is a rock musical that follows Todd, an angst-ridden teen, in plague-ridden, 14th-century London and his desire to make great art in a time of great need. This wildly creative new musical strikes a brilliant balance of modern day characters, a pop-punk score and the life-changing events of 1349. Anyone who has ever wondered what life is all about will be enlightened, entertained and amazed. This musical contains adult situations and language.
