A fierce alt folk opera about love, life, and loss.
Hundred Days is the fierce, triumphant story of a young couple who fall in love only to have their time together cut short by a fatal illness. With the brash intensity of youth, they try to live the 100 days they have left together as though it were the 60 years they imagined they would have.
This new alt folk opera is written by and starring husband and wife duo The Bengsons (Cincy Fringe 2010 & 2011), directed by two time Obie Award Winner Anne Kauffman, and features choreography by the Emmy nominated Sonya Tayeh (So You Think You Can Dance).
Hundred Days blends the simple magic of storytelling with a no-holds-barred concert, for a truly unique theatrical event.
