Tess, A New Musical in Concert
Music, Lyrics, and Book by Annie Mullee
Direction by Margot New
Musical Direction by Jennifer Sapiro
A dark indie-folk musical reimagining of Thomas Hardy's novel, Tess of the D'Urbervilles - a story of burden, tragedy, and resilience.
Tess tells the story of a young woman in provincial England who experiences poverty, sexual assault, injustice, and exile from her community. This adaptation uses indie-folk music to paint women as survivors rather than victims and focuses on their dreams, friendships, and passions.
In this one night only event, an all-star cast will present all the music from Tess and guide you through the story behind the musical.
