About the piece

Bekah struggles with her multiple selves during a severe psychotic episode while waiting for her friend and classmate Nate to pick her up and take her to the hospital. Her six different selves help and hinder the process while revealing past trauma and present fears. A tour de force for a daring soprano showcasing multiple styles and colors and testing dramatic acting capabilities. The baritone is a supporting role.
