This new musical at Sonata follows Arisha as they travel in search of their operatic career overseas in Oklahoma City. Soon after their arrival, life turns into a broadway fairytale for Arisha but after closure of their campus in March 2020, life for the budding star is completely uprooted. 

Relying on the community for support after becoming homeless, Arisha stays in New Mexico in emergency housing to complete their studies and returns to Manchester with quite the story to tell. The show uses a mix of jazz, musical theatre and pop to explore displacement, homelessness and queer relationships.
