A tragic tale of loss at the heart of the Miller family that explores how a loving family is torn apart by grief.
It’s 1927 in Knoxville, Tennessee at what is seemingly another mundane day in the Miller family home, when an unexpected death in the family occurs. This original narrative by Hailey West is paired with the seminal music of Samuel Barber, Ned Rorem, Jake Heggie, Jonathan Dove, Lori Laitman and many more.
Relatable, thought-provoking, and heartfelt, this story represents the realistic family dynamics in the midst of troubled times.
