SUMMER IN THE PARK
Book by Ellen Dryden, lyrics by Don Taylor, music by Charles Young
A derelict park is threatened by developers and a group of young people try to rescue it by writing and performing a play. But the project soon falters: the developers hover, the cast bicker and the hot weather breaks with a violent thunderstorm. But the park exercises a strange control over them. A subtle, touching story combining an accurate, amusing account of producing a play with lively, realistic characterisation and a memorable score.
