Music & Lyrics by Adam Gwon
A workaholic Greek goddess gets tangled up with a security guard in the basement of the tallest building in the world. One mistake leads to another (a lost pair of scissors, a kiss, a stolen string) and soon the oldest Fate is breaking her own rules to offer forever to an ordinary man. Can the fabric of the universe stand a flaw? An original musical about the three Fates in the modern city. [4M, 6F (flex); one intermission]

So you go and marry the King of the Dead and then your mother threatens to destroy the whole earth because she misses you. Growing up is tough, huh? A soul-searching update of the Greek myth about Persephone, queen of the underworld, and her mother, goddess of the harvest with a quirky score, as funny as it is haunting. [3M, 4F]
"River of Forgetting" from Barefoot Persephone.
