In between concerts and classes, Louise is a student still reeling from her sexual assault a year ago. When she meets a new beau, Lou must face her anxieties head on and figure out how to be intimate without reliving the trauma of her past. A dramedy about the friends, poets, and bands that get us through our darkest moments, Unfinished Album of Lazarus Lovesong is the soundtrack of Lou’s resurrection and an ode to survivors everywhere. Developed in Georgetown University’s Hope Playwriting Seminar and directed by the Associate Artistic Director of Imagination Stage.
