From acclaimed writer Jeff Augustin (The New Englanders at MTC, "The Morning Show") comes a timely story of a son's quest to connect with his father. Lyrical story-telling and live folk songs from The Bengsons weave a tale of searching and longing, family and legacy. A Haitian immigrant travels from Miami to California on a once-in-a-lifetime road trip. Years later, his son makes the same journey in reverse. Along the way, blurring the lines of time, these two finally discover common ground and make a connection that has eluded them for decades. Directing is Princess Grace Award winner Joshua Kahan Brody.
The creative teams includes Arnulfo Maldonado (Scenic design), Dominique Fawn Hill (Costume design), Stacey Derosier (Lighting design), Ben Truppin-Brown (Sound design), Sarah Lunnie (Dramaturgy), and Steph Paul (Movement).
Where the Mountain Meets the Sea was commissioned by and premiered in the 2020 Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
