About the show:
Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile's proposal of marriage. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he's fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe's life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.

YMTC is proud to welcome former YMTC Artistic Director and award winning composer, Dave Malloy back to the Bay Area for an exciting collaboration. Dave, who wrote the newest New York musical hit (Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812) will be working with award-winning playwright Krista Knight to develop a new musical work for YMTC's students.
YMTC will be holding a 2-week workshop designed to develop the piece into a full scale production slated for performance in our 2014-2015 season. Students cast in this workshop will collaborate with Dave, Krista, Director, Jennifer Boesing, and Music Director, Dave Möschler to take the work from a rough draft to a more developed stage and will be presented to the public as a works in progress performance. The student actors, as well as the audience will be invited to give the writers feedback and the workshop will give the writers the opportunity to further develop the show.
This is an incredible opportunity for students to work with a professional composer/book writer team on a world premiere in which they, the students, will have personally originated and developed roles that could go on to play in professional houses across the country.
