THEY DEFINED CULT STATUS — AND WERE GONE IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE. Fremont, NH, the late '60s. A working class dad has a vision of rock n' roll destiny for his three talentless daughters, convinced they're his family's one-way ticket out of hardship and obscurity. But the girls have ideas of their own — and as their father's ambition turns to obsession, the price of familial obligation becomes all too clear. With all original music inspired by the stranger-than-fiction true story of The Shaggs.
This is a co-production of Playwrights Horizons, New York Theatre Workshop, and South Ark Rep
