A play with Music.
Finalist for The Jerome Playwriting Fellowship.
To the smooth grooves of a jazz quartet, Dave and Essie get Gershwined.
It's 1947, it's Newark, it's a hot Saturday night. The kind of night that lasts a lifetime.
Feet float. Bodies fly.
Twenty years.
Memory loses shine.
Twenty more.
Heads now encased in surgical halos, unable to walk, Dave and Essie can
still swing.
The dance never stops.
The dance never stops.
The dance never stops.
