Synopsis


Unexpected Joy is the story of three generations of female singers, long-held family tensions and a week together where change is in the air - Joy, a baby boomer pop star, is visited by her daughter, Rachel and granddaughter Tamara.


Rachel is married to a prominent televangelist, so Joy is reluctant to divulge that she's planning to marry Lou, another singer who happens to be a woman.


A week with all four together is bound to lead to tension, laughter, discoveries and happiness that really is unexpected.


Let the sparks and music fly!


Through laughter, tears, self-discovery, and an original and compelling score, Unexpected Joy encourages its characters, as well as the audience, to take a journey of self-discovery because, at the end of the day, we really are all just one big family.


With Book and Lyrics by Bill Russell (Tony-nominated for Side Show) and Music by Janet Hood (Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens).
