IN BETWEEN is a song cycle which moves through the cycle of life. Inspired by the universal elements: earth, water, fire, air, we witness the push and pull of the elemental forces and how they can guide us or lead us astray. A cast of four, this haunting, 60-minute show explores themes of passing over, rebirth and self-discovery.
CHAPTERS follows the lives of six characters whose paths intersect as the choices they make impact not only their lives, but the lives of those around them. Spanning over a period of seven years, CHAPTERS is a poignant through-composed musical that deals with love and loss and proves that it’s never too late to start a fresh chapter.
