New York City, 1981: Punk is eclipsed by ‘post-punk’ as Bowery musicians experiment with genre fusion and the avant-garde. Reluctantly admitted to a psychiatric hospital after a shocking public meltdown, post-punk singer King Nigel recounts the painful truth of being abandoned by her vagabond parents as a child. Searching for community, she dives into the Bowery music scene where she defiantly remakes herself into a new entity that is more of a tempered suit of armor than an honest reflection of who she is inside.
The production features the voices of Anzu Lawson, Farida Rautaharju, Siobhan Doherty, Steve J. Palmer, Jon Kita, Zach Tirone, Lola Darzens,and Bushra Laskar, and choreography by Jasmine Ejan and Malia Baker.
