Teenage Zombies, Budding Lesbians, Pillow Fights, Peeping Toms, the Total Woman and Tween Angst converge at a 1972 suburban jammy party. Party games turn deadly, the dead play Truth or Dare, Bloody Mary is conjured, and centuries of female shame transform into wild pride in this world premiere musical.

Wuthering Heights by Bernard Herrmann

Wuthering Heights is based on Emily Brontë's gothic romance. Unable to bridge the chasm of social class, Heathcliff and Catherine are consumed by a love that can never be, and its legacy haunts the windswept Yorkshire moors. The music of the opera, composed by Hollywood legend Bernard Herrmann, underscores the novel's passion, prejudice and mystery.
