book and lyrics by Octavio Solis
music and lyrics by Adam Gwon
Monica's head is in the clouds most of the time--she takes photos of them and pastes them in a book, trying to capture them before they're gone. But when she discovers her mother in a tryst with a stranger, her entire life begins to feel as ephemeral and unreliable as a cloud. She decides to investigate the mystery of her mother's secret life and the man at its center--but the deeper she goes, the more lost Monica becomes in the labyrinth of her own heart. A new musical drama about desire and its transgressions.
