If you hear this from anyone else, they’ll tell it wrong.’

Texas, 1969. The country is bursting with vibes of peace, love and rock ‘n’ roll. Fronting a rock band, raising some hell, Jeannie’s a disgrace to her mother and having the time of her life.

That is, until she’s dragged back to the oppressive small-town values of a home she’s outgrown. Stuck once again out in the remote Texas desert, Jeannie stews behind a locked door, desperate to escape.

But she has a confession to make first.

This breathtaking new play stares straight at the collateral damage of a life led in search of a legacy, fusing electrifying live music with an extraordinary story that ‘packs a hell of a punch’.

Victoria is an alumna of the Lyric Hammersmith Young Writers' Programme, and was taught by award-winning British playwrights Duncan Macmillan and Simon Stephens. She was shortlisted for the Lyric's Emerging Artists Prize, and her play Variations made the longlist for the Soho Theatre's Verity Bargate Award.

WHITNEY MOSERY

DIRECTOR

 

Whitney Mosery is a New York-based, internationally-oriented theatremaker; often a director, sometimes a deviser, and more recently, a writer and co-creator. After becoming the first American ever to receive a Masters in Theatre Directing from RADA, Whitney joined the Almeida Theatre as their first Director in Residence.  

 

Since then, her work has focused primarily on directing premieres of new plays and musicals, though she also directs her own reworkings of classics, like a midnight ritual/ bonfire/ danceparty/ play Bacchanalia based on Charles Mee and Euripides (Greece/UK/US).  Whitney was also Associate Director of American Psycho the Musical (Broadway) and King Charles III (West End and Broadway), and Co-Director of the King Charles III International Tour.

 

Current projects include developing and directing Murder at the Gates, a pop-punk murder mystery musical by Steven Sater and James Bourne (of the UK’s Busted and McFly), and co-authoring a new musical with Zoe Sarnak.  As a resident of the 2016-2017 Habitat Theatre Directors Playground, Whitney is co-writing and directing XDR: A post-biotic love story with collaborator Joshua Williams.  And perhaps most enjoyable of all: Whitney is a frequent directing mentor, guest lecturer and panelist, most recently at Princeton, NYU and RADA.  Williamstown Theatre Festival alum.  BA Princeton, Associate Member SDC.
