Easter Rising concerns the last few weeks of a man's life. As his battle with a terminal cancer draws near, he confronts buried relationships with his estranged childhood friend and struggles with the dilemma of balancing a love for his wife and this man from his past. Set in Plano, Texas this four person song cycle questions the limits of love, definition of family and the morals we pass on to our children when our own are in debate. This concert is produced by KBA productions.
