Based on Carol Lynn Pearson’s stirring play, Facing East is a new and intimate musical by David Rigano and Mark-Eugene Garcia.

The show follows an upstanding American Mormon couple who unexpectedly meet their gay son’s partner whilst dealing with his death. When they’re forced to face a reality long ignored, they must balance their beliefs with their emotions and make peace with this stranger in order to make peace with their loss.

Hosted and narrated by Harriet Thorpe, the performance gives audiences the opportunity to be amongst the first to witness the musical as it completes its development.

This show is suitable for ages 12 and older.
