St. Louisan Keith Moyer presents an array of new compositions deeply rooted in the jazz trumpet tradition yet authentically personal. Keith is a self described, “trumpet playing saxophonist” and is heavily cross pollinated by the powerful saxophone playing of John Coltrane often erupting with feats of expressive virtuosity. His compositions are imbued with an array of emotions from jubilant to sublime.

This is the third remount of the play by popular demand.

Audience members say:
"The heartbreaking portrayals were electrifying, informative and penetrating.
The language, movements and actions were so descriptive."
"I am moved to help refugees in any way that I can now that I know their stories!"
