SYNOPSIS: Beautiful tells the true story of Carole King’s meteoric rise to fame as one of the twentieth century’s foremost singer-songwriters. We are introduced to Carole when she is 16 and pitching her first song (“It Might As Well Rain Until September”) to New York music producer Don Kirshner. Soon after, she meets her future husband and creative collaborator, Gerry Goffin. In a musical whirlwind, the couple are married, King gives birth to their first child and the duo make a name for themselves in the music business, knocking out hit after hit. However, while their careers are on the rise, Carole’s personal life falls apart when Gerry announces that he wants an affair. As Carole tries to negotiate marriage, adultery and personal happiness, she is supported by friends and playful rivals, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. Although they all compete for number one hits on the pop chart, Carole relies on their support to change her life and find her own voice. Set in the vibrant pop industry of the 1960s and early 1970s, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical features a tapestry of musical hits from the creative songwriting teams of King and Goffin, Weil and Mann.

SYNOPSIS: VOID deals with the crushing impact of child-abduction on the lives of parents. A mother and father, who lost their 4-year-old daughter to abductors in a playground 14 years ago, relive the all-consuming grief that has become an overwhelming and inerasable reality in their lives. It has destroyed their marriage and, in an avalanche of self-recrimination and blame, they attempt to deal with their sorrow in separate monologues in a park where the crime occurred. While their pain is palpable, there is also an element of acceptance of the tragedy as they hesitantly try to come to terms with their loss.
