Stories from Illyria

Buy Tickets

Project Theatre is proud to present the WORLD PREMIERE of Stories from Illyria, a musical that was inspired by the composer’s experiences working in Croatia in a Bosnian refugee camp in 1994. It is a dual love story set in Illyria, an imaginary country which resembles the former Yugoslavia (but could be Afghanistan or Iraq or anywhere). Michael and Sean, the main characters, are an American couple who are unable to have children. They go to Illyria to work as refugee volunteers and find themselves searching for a way to help amidst the differences in culture. Against the backdrop of war and the losses the people have suffered, everyone struggles with the idea of what defines our culture and our individuality. Michael and Sean fight to create community and family despite the fact that the Illyrians have no home.
