book, music and lyrics by Peter Mills and Cara Reichel
Originally workshopped by the company in 2001, this season, Prospect returns to Meyerville, Illinois and one community's struggle against the rising tide of the Mississippi River that would wipe it off the map. The events of the past five years have only added to the resonance of this epic story, which documents the catastrophic floods in the Midwest during the summer of 1993. Mythic and moving, with a stirring score and deeply American characters, The Flood looks for meaning in cycles of devastation and rebirth, and finds that even in the wake of tragedy there are things that float.
