The Happiest Song Plays Last

  • $ 14.95


""At the dawn of the Arab Spring in an ancient Jordanian town, an Iraq War veteran struggles to overcome the traumas of combat by taking on an entirely new and unexpected career: action film hero. A search for redemption, humility, and one's place in the world, this is the final installment in Quiara Alegria Hudes's The Elliot Trilogy, which began with Pulitzer Prize finalist Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue and Pulitzer Prize-winner Water by the Spoonful. Set to the joyful sounds of traditional Puerto Rican folk music, this poignant new play enjoyed its world premiere at Chicago's Goodman Theatre in 2013, and its New York premiere at Second Stage Theatre in 2014.""--
