Winghaven Park is a new, full-length musical play written
(book, music, lyrics).
The story is about the consequences of war and forgotten love in a small island community.
Fear and racial prejudice can lead a community, and even a nation, into isolation, even violence, unless courageous people are prepared to speak the truth and demonstrate resilience through love and hope.
The songs draw on the diverse musical palette of the 1940s - swing, blues, ballads, musical comedy, aiming toward memorable tunes, with a balance of songs and spoken dialogue.
Producing a new work involves risk, but Drama Dock views risk as essential to life and opportunity...in particular, artistic growth for the theatre, for artist-writers and for a discerning community inspired by new work.
Set in 1944, Winghaven Park is an ode to Vashon's beautiful, sometimes painful, history but the collaboration behind the story's production seeks to build new relationships beyond Vashon's shores - for audiences and artists alike.
