"Oh, how the lines sing"

In a barrio living room in North Philly, an activist-turned-music-professor moonlights as the local soup kitchen queen, cooking free rice and beans for any hungry neighbor

Halfway around the world, her cousin relives his military trauma on the set of a docudrama that's filming in Jordan

With the Egyptian revolution booming in the distance, these two young adults try to sing a defiant song of legacy and love in the face of local and global unrest

"Intensely engaging new drama. Hudes' story not only comes with the unmistakable whiff of authenticity but conveys how none of our lives are entirely ordinary, and how small stuff actually connects to all kinds of big stuff, be it matters of global import, community progress or the cliches of Hollywood representation. Hudes is a very accomplished storyteller, a playwright with an emergent, fulsome American narrative." -Chicago Tribune

"As ever, Hudes' writing is poetic but wry, full of swagger and poetry. Oh, how the lines sing" ~ Time Out NY
