HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING
By Amanda Keating
Directed by Molly Clifford
The Hilltown Singers are back, and they’re preparing for their first concert in months (years? years). Everything has changed and nothing has changed as these old friends (friends? friends) return to the old place where they used to sing but with new questions and new songs that feel more discordant than anyone thought they’d be. Joined by newcomer Henry, and cheered on by their single audience member Jan, the Hilltown Singers want to find themselves in music again, but find something perhaps more difficult and more beautiful than they expected. HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING is a story about survival in the face of unspeakable strangeness, and the need to sing together, even when it might be impossible.
Virtual performance Tuesday, May 4 at 1:30 p.m. CST
