What's it like to be awake when the rest of your world is asleep? Meet an early-morning jogger, a lonely short-wave radio DJ, a modern Romeo and Juliet, a most unusual letter-writer and many other teen characters, who, through a series of scenes and monologues, as they search for connection and navigate their fears and dreams in that magical hour between night and morning.
Based on my hit one-act play, 4 A.M., with a pop rock score and lyrics by singer-songwriter by Alison Wood.
