Last September

A Playwriting & Music Composition SCE from Andrew Wink
March 23 & 25, 2017
Last September is a serious, yet quirky musical-in-progress that takes place on a direct flight from San Diego to Baltimore. Nick, a recent college graduate flying home to keep his family together, and John, a businessman who is trying to escape his, are seated next to each other. During the duration of the flight, they tell stories about their families and college years as they both figure out what to do about their respective family issues. This musical deals with mental illness and suicide in college students and dealing with a loss in the family from an optimistic and even humorous point of view. The music pulls inspirations from contemporary rock and metal bands including Green Day, Breaking Benjamin, System of Down, and even Bon Jovi.
