DESCRIPTION

On March 1st, Hundred Days will have its world premiere at San Francisco’s Z Space, one of the nation’s best incubators of new works for the stage. It’s conceived, created and composed by married duo Shaun and Abigail Bengson, who blend soaring vocals, frenetic rhythms and rousing all-join-hands choruses to create a new hybrid of folk rock, theater and art.

 

Hundred Days begins in the vaudevillian concert-style direct address that The Bengsons have mastered as a band. Shaun and Abigail tell the fierce, triumphant story of Will and Sarah, a young couple who fall in love only to have their time together cut short by illness. Will and Sarah decide to take the short time they have left together, 100 days, and live them as though they were the 60 years they imagined they would share. As the story unfolds, Shaun and Abigail and the world around them morph from a present-day concert setting, into the intense inner world of Will and Sarah, as the couple enters a fantastic universe attempting to out-wit time and live out full lives in the short time they have left. They find raucous adventures, pain and sorrow, true solace and eventually peace through their passionate commitment and new “lifetime” of memories.

 

This major work will redefine the “Rock Opera” concept for a new generation, incorporating the sophistication of American dramatic theater with live concert, cabaret, surrealism, visually stunning sets, a full choir and salt. Yes, salt.
