The Undeniable Sound of Right Now

by Laura Eason
directed by Brandon McCoy

DC Premiere

It’s 1992. Chicago. Hank is struggling to keep his legendary rock club going amid changing times and changing tastes. But when his beloved daughter, Lena, starts dating a rising star DJ, Hank must contend with the destructive power of the Next Big Thing. Like a blast of feedback from a Fender amp, Laura Eason’s (Sex with Strangers, “House of Cards”) THE UNDENIABLE SOUND OF RIGHT NOW brings to hilarious and heartbreaking life the moment when Kurt and Courtney ruled, but Moby was just around the corner…

“…engaging…Ms. Eason draws an affectionate but unsentimental portrait of this makeshift family as it undergoes a period of sudden stress.” – The New York Times

“Eason transports viewers to a different era, one where there was an actual element of danger to the music we listened to and the places where we listened…In an era where all of the old music venues, bars, and diners are closing down, it’s undeniable how timely and contemplative Eason’s play truly is.”  –
