The Book of Sebastien

An Original Musical

Workshop, Late Summer 2018

Spain, 1937: A volatile period of Civil War. As the front descends upon his hometown, Sebastien, a mischievous young Jesuit with a thirst for adventure, sets off to discover life on his own terms.  His search is challenged by an eccentric ferryman, a rebel band of socialists, and a nation grappling with its uncertain future. Based on the classic novel Siddhartha by Herman Hesse, The Book of Sebastien is a sweeping exploration of passion, consequence, and how we define God in a modern world.
