Written by Nebraska playwright Becky Boesen and composer David von Kampen, CATHERLAND tells the story of Susan, an emerging writer living the life of her dreams, complete with an adoring husband and an almost-finished first novel. When tragedy strikes and the trajectory of her life changes, she must decide how to move forward.  Searching for answers, she flees to Red Cloud, Nebraska, the childhood home of novelist Willa Cather. Guided by her curiosity and the presence of a mysterious guest, Susan discovers that life is more about beginnings than endings.  A lesson in embracing the unexpected, CATHERLAND reminds us that "where there is great love, there are always miracles.
CATHERLAND in-concert is an impactful work-in-progress, which takes a minimalist approach to staging, focusing on storytelling through song.
