Passage Theatre Company Presents "Group!" - A World Premiere Musical

(TRENTON, NJ) -- Passage Theatre Company will present the world premiere of the new musical Group! from May 5-22 at the Mill Hill Playhouse in Trenton. The musical explores the lives of six women who meet during  therapy sessions.  The show, with lyrics by Eloise Govedare, music by Aleksandra M. Weil, and a book by Julia B. Rosenblatt, examines moments of fear, celebration, and everything in between as these women grapple with their mental health in the face of sobriety. 

“We are thrilled to present the world premiere of this important new musical that will challenge audiences to grapple with tough questions,” said Passage Artistic Director C. Ryanne Domingues.  “Group! asks if  the current mental health care system can really support a path towards long term recovery.  Featuring an all-female cast and an all-female and non-binary production team, the show is exactly the type of work Passage Theatre strives to present; work that is a reflection of our culture and society today.”

Directed by Maria Patrice Amon, Group! Tells the story of five women from all walks of life who have been court ordered to attend group therapy.  Jessica, a therapist assigned to facilitate the sessions, has never managed a group before.  Together, these six women from vastly different worlds come together to battle the great equalizer: addiction.  As the women wonder who will make it through therapy, and if any of them will fall off the proverbial wagon, they become closer and learn to embrace the process.
