EMBERS, a Jazz Opera in Poems

What if the fate of your soul hinged on a single prayer?

The clock is ticking on MARIE GIRARD’s prospects of redemption. After a life of prostitution and mental hospitals, MARIE dies an old woman and finds herself stuck in Purgatory with precious little time before Hell opens beneath her.

What she needs is a prayer, and the only person who can give it is her granddaughter, BLAZIN’ BRYN, an aging professional boxer with only one prayer in mind: that she win a make-it-or-break-it fight against a much younger opponent.

With the help of CALCUTTA, an angel in lamé, who takes the younger woman on a guided tour through her grandmother’s past, Marie and Bryn come together in a tale of forgiveness and redemption.

Listen to samples of music from EMBERS.
