Featuring a book and lyrics by Victor Lodato, music by Polly Pen and directed by Jack Cummings III, Arlington tells the story of Sara Jane (Silber), who waits for her soldier husband to return from war. After a few too many bourbons, Sara Jane poses dangerous questions and reveals nasty secrets.
Farhead or The Secret of Being, featuring a book and lyrics by Nilo Cruz and music by Jim Bauer and directed by Saheem Ali is the story of an Afghan girl (Jacobs) who was raised as a boy. When she reaches puberty and is plunged into an arranged marriage, she must face the abrupt changes of womanhood.
