Mayday Mayday Tuesday: Shawney’s story

by Carlos Murillo

Directed by Raymi Ortuste Quiroga & David Zoob

A soul backing vocalist dies and her son is taken by his mysterious uncle, who longs to recapture his past pop stardom. Across the city, a pregnant novelist seeks to uncover a mystery: is there a ghost in her new home, or is her husband having an affair? Next door, a wealthy couple struggles to keep up appearances while raising their troubled adopted child. Hiding out in a repossessed condo, a sexy musicology student becomes private detective, searching for a lost musical genius. When a long forgotten record album resurfaces in Chicago, these disparate lives will collide. Carlos Murillo has rearranged these stories into a two self-contained plays specially for Buford’s New Writing Season 2018.

Directed by Raymi Ortuste Quiroga & David Zoob
