THE DANGER YEAR
Music & Lyrics by Georgia Stitt
In Japan, there is a belief that people at certain ages experience a “danger year”—years of calamity, upheaval, and rebirth. For men, those ages are 25 and 42, and for women, 19, 33 and 37. This revue, THE DANGER YEAR, brings five actors (3W, 2M) through these explosive and pivotal moments in their lives as they confront the choices they’ve made, the relationships they’ve built (or destroyed), the worlds they yearn for, and the worlds they can no longer sustain.
