Afterwords @ The 5th Avenue Theatre (Downtown Seattle)
Music and Lyrics by Zoe Sarnak
Book by Emily Kaczmarek
Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt
A breathtaking story about the power of art to heal, Afterwords is a captivating new musical featuring a rhythmic and soulful score that fuses pop, rock, and modern indie-folk.
Reeling from the sudden loss of their mother, sisters Kali and Simone are once again roommates in their childhood home. Burdened with mounting bills, they decide to rent out the attic, and into their lives walks Jo, a war reporter grieving her own deep loss. As the women get to know each other and struggle to reckon with the past, a complex mosaic of intersecting lives reveals itself. A formally inventive exploration of family, grief, healing, and redemption, Afterwords is the story of three women bound by notes scribbled down on paper, and the art we make from the love that makes us.
