Based on Carol Lynn Pearson's stirring play, FACING EAST is a new and intimate musical by David Rigano and Mark-Eugene Garcia.
FACING EAST 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.
Now making its UK premiere for one night only at the West End's Lyric Theatre, this is one of the first opportunities to hear the soaring new score of this emerging musical following workshops in Dallas and Chicago and ahead of its first fully staged production in 2016.
