VENUE: Vashon Center for the Arts
Winghaven Park is a new, full-length musical play
(book, music, lyrics)
Set on Vashon in 1944, Winghaven Park explores 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 writers, and for a discerning community inspired by new work.
