The Light Rail

Book by Chelsea Hickman; Music and Lyrics by Kira Stone

Take that first step...

Stinging from old and recent loss, childhood neighbors Sam and Lindsay reunite by chance on Seattle’s light rail. As they begin to fall in love, they slowly learn that healing can be found in the most unusual places, and in other people just as broken as themselves. In this original contemporary musical by Kira Stone, innovative movement and music combine to depict the realities of people living with mental illness, and the power we all have to live imperfectly and beautifully.

Running time: 1 hour 25 minutes
