In an opium den at the turn of the 20th century, Willow sacrifices her life to pay off her father’s debt by working in an occult underground society called “The Cave.” In this musical exploration of fairy tales, myths, and spiritualism, Willow fights to find light not only in the grim and strange shadow-world around her, but also within herself.
Following the sold-out, award winning production at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival, The Cave: A Folk Opera by Melanie Rose Thomas will be making its New York City debut this March at Access Theater. This show has also previously been performed at Sarah Lawrence College, Vassar College and in London at The British American Drama Academy. At the Hollywood Fringe Festival last year, the show won “Best First Play” and “The Encore Producer’s Award,” also known as, “Best of Fringe Extensions” and received an extended run due to popular demand!
