WHAT WAS IS ALL – Progress Showing
Presented by Walters and Watt
Book, music and lyrics by Walters and Watt
Formerly titled ‘Host Town’ at Nextfest 2022, WHAT WAS IS ALL is a folk-rock musical written by Jacquelin Walters and Michael Watt. The story centres around the remnants – both material and immaterial – and residents – both living and dead – of a small town. The cast of characters includes a would-be, disenfranchised spiritual (cult) leader; his long-suffering, faithless spouse; a disenchanted, hopeless romantic; an aimless, disillusioned heir; and a mischievous, indifferent stranger. The struggle is one of purposefulness, willfulness, and helplessness. Each character explores their needs, strengths, and weaknesses. It is a tragedy from the outset but also a cautionary tale.
