In an opium den at the turn of the 20th century, Willow sacrifices her life to pay off her father’s debt by working in an occult underground society called "The Cave." In this musical exploration of fairy tales, myths, and spiritualism, Willow fights to find light not only in the grim and strange shadow-world around her, but also within herself.
“The Cave: A Folk Opera” was last produced by The Daughters Collective in an award-winning production at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival. The show has also had a previous production at Access Theatre, has been seen in concert at music venues around NYC such as Rockwood Music Hall and The Bowery Electric, and has had workshop productions at Sarah Lawrence College, Vassar College, and in London at The British American Drama Academy.
