Between Us and Grace
Stella is seventeen and ready for what’s next. Chafing at the confines of her increasingly strict religious upbringing, music has become her escape. She shares a too-small town with Jacky, a restless fellow songwriter. A chance meeting on a lonely Sunday night sets in motion a chain of events that will profoundly shift both of their lives. A workshop of a new play laced with music, Between Us and Grace is an exploration of creation, faith, and the price of inspiration.
