New Musical! The Way Back to Thursday, starring Astrid Van Wieren and Rob Kempson
October 18, 2020
A two-person song cycle, The Way Back To Thursday chronicles the 30-year relationship between a grandmother and her grandson as they negotiate issues of sexuality, aging, family relationships, and ultimately, love. Cameron (the grandson) wants to keep his special relationship with Grandma as a time capsule—an unchanging part of his identity, reflective of only their past—but as time passes, that begins to shift. More than anything, The Way Back To Thursday is a musical about unconditional love that crosses generations, genders and lifetimes.
Following its premiere in January 2014, the piece was nominated for OUTSTANDING NEW MUSICAL at the Dora Mavor Moore Awards 2014. It was then presented at the 2015 In Tune Festival (Touchstone Theatre/Arts Club) in Vancouver, June 2015. Join writer and composer, Rob Kempson, and original cast member, Astrid Van Wieren (Come From Away), for this one-night-only New York premiere!
