A One-Man Sci-Fi Storytelling Folk Music Adventure
Lyrics and music by Aaron J. Shay
Script by Charlotte Peters & Aaron J. Shay
Directed by Charlotte Peters
This project has been selected for the Jack Straw Productions Artist Support Program (ASP). An album for this show will be produced in 2018, whereupon the show will be toured to festivals and conventions around the country.
Set in the year 2084, “Apocalypse Songs” follows the story of an explorer/poet named Captain Redacted who is sent to explore alternate universes and other Earths, describing each one in song. In this production, Shay unites his musical performance with his love of science fiction and storytelling, leading us through many fantastical Earths, each one bearing some small resemblance to our own.
