SCKBSTD – A New Musical By Bruce Hornsby tells the story of close-knit small town rocked with rumor and fear when a stranger moves in and cruises the streets in his Dodge. It’s the third play in VSC’s American Soil series, which tells the rich stories of Southeastern Virginia. Clay McLeod Chapman is the Book Author; Chip deMatteo is Co-Lyricist.
VSC Artistic Director Chris Hanna notes, “It’s a stellar group of national theater talent converging at The Wells. Spiral Staircase and Bruce Hornsby chose the perfect spot for SCKBSTD’s World Premiere. This modern story about loss, love and relationships in a small town is a natural fit with our American Soil series that highlights the unique colors of life here in southeastern Virginia.”
