Rhyme and Punishment: A Musical Comedy in One Act
Three college Juniors fail a poetry class just days before their Spring Semester Abroad. As they scatter across the globe in this one-act musical comedy, the jilted Juniors go on a journey of self-discovery with only a stack of poems as their guide. Through songs modeled after international poetic forms (Haiku, Sonnet, Sapphic verse, etc.), the friends navigate near-death experiences, romantic trysts, foreign sports, and foreign brews, only to find poetic pleasure in what first seems like punishment.
