Jamaica Plain Playwright Wartofsky Debuts New Play ‘Late’ at Boston New Works Festival

Moonbox Productions is thrilled to announce that Jamaica Plain resident Michael Wartofsky along with his co-writer Kathleen Cahill will showcase the play, Late: A New Musical, at the first ever Boston New Works Festival. Late is a musical and was written as a way to express the writer’s heartbreak about the murder of American school children through gun violence. Two weeks after a school shooting, nine teenagers return to class. In a theatrical style reminiscent of Our Town, they try to piece together the fragments of their last ordinary day together. With a contemporary sound inspired by musicals like Dear Evan Hansen and Spring Awakening, Late explores the students’ interconnected stories as they wrestle with identity, social pressure, love, grief, and memory.
