ABOUT THE SHOW: Inspired by Noah’s Ark and migration stories, *WAYWARD HOME* is a musical folktale about a family forced to begin again. Through original music and fantastical storytelling, a trio of performers untangles a universal tale of love, loss, and rebirth, and delve into the question “How do we keep going when the world turns upside down? Three actors play all the roles and accompany themselves musically live on-stage. The set is minimal and with no fourth wall performer-audience relationship is paramount.
