ANYTHING THAT GIVES OFF LIGHT Heads to Joe's Pub

ANYTHING THAT GIVES OFF LIGHT Heads to Joe's Pub

An American woman and two Scotsmen meet in a London pub, nursing their individual grievances and sense of political betrayal. When the ashes of a legendary social activist and kickass grandmother demand to be laid to rest, the trio head off on a transformative journey between the past and present, the real and imagined, Scottish highlands and Appalachian mountains, in search of a fitting ending.

Anything That Gives Off Light features a throbbing score by award-winning duo The Bengsons that mixes the Scottish-American folk tradition with stomping punk, and The TEAM's trademark athletic performance style. "A whisky-fired fantasia... a slow-burning mediation on a past that refuses to lie down and stay buried, even as it's mythologized along the way" says The Herald Scotland.

Written by Jessica Almasy, Davey Anderson, Rachel Chavkin, Brian Ferguson, and Alexander Grierson. Created in collaboration with Matt Hubbs, Nick Vaughan, Brian Hastert, and Libby King. Directed by Rachel Chavkin with Associate Director Davey Anderson. Music and Lyrics by The Bengsons.
