In an abandoned house on a cold shore, a Girl hides from her rambunctious sisters to dream up stories for the weathered walls. When she meets the Friend, she is overwhelmed by first love and must decide how far she is willing to go (and who she is willing to let go of) to keep her refuge of fantasy. This new folk tale weaves a haunted landscape from folk and jazz music, and invites you to a world where the air is cold but the people are warm, humming with a bit more magic than our own.

Beth Golison writes multi-genre musicals that dig at the pit in our stomachs, unearth new truths, and interrogate harmful structures. She engages in storytelling as an act of healing and a transmission of warmth. Her work centers Queer people and people living with mental illness, and she always work to bring honesty, care, and gentleness into the room (for each other, for the material, and for each other’s material).
