CHRONICLES GENDER

SELF-DISCOVERY & INTERGENERATIONAL QUEERNESS

WITH A SIDE OF PUNK ROCK

In a small town in Big Sky Country, Sam O’Malley uncovers an old family photo depicting an aunt that Sam has never heard of before. In an attempt to find this estranged relative through traditional means (Google), Sam discovers Aunt Meredith is ‘80s lesbian punk rock icon, Vikki Vektor. After tumbling down the internet rabbit hole, Sam also realizes they are nonbinary (what even is that?) and ends up with more questions than answers. But maybe Aunt Meredith can help, if only they can find her.

Here and Their is an inaugural commission from the 5th Avenue Theatre’s First Draft: Raise Your Voice program. The writers will present two songs from the show performed remotely.

HALF THE SKY

music by 

TIDTAYA SINUTOKE

 A CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN MUSICAL

ON A GLOBAL SCALE, INFUSED WITH THE SOUNDS OF TRADITIONAL THAI & HIMALAYAN FOLK MUSIC

Half the Sky tells the story of an Asian American woman climbing Mount Everest. Aurelie sets out to fulfill her childhood dream of summiting Everest, in an expedition of hopeful climbers from around the world, led by a teenage Sherpa. As she grapples with the grueling demands of the mountain, Aurelie finds she must also confront her Thai American family’s past, and the rift which separates her from her younger sister. Borders between countries and cultures, past and present, and waking and dreaming begin to blur. The writers will present two songs from the show performed remotely.


Half the Sky is an inaugural commission from the 5th Avenue Theatre’s First Draft: Raise Your Voice program, and has also been developed in part with Musical Theatre Factory, Theater Mu’s New Eyes Festival, Theater Latté Da’s NEXT Festival, Town Stages, the Weston Playhouse Theatre (Weston-Ghostlight New Musical Award), and the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.
