Every true story carries a secret untold.
Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated bluegrass score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. The arrival of a young soldier just home from World War II, sets Alice Murphy on a journey to understand her past; what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. Winner of the 2016 Drama Desk Award, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daring and hopeful. Recommended for ages 13+
