When you fall in love for the first time in your 50’s and the worst happens, you have a choice. You can hide under the bed–or, you can write GRIEF: THE MUSICAL…A COMEDY. Arising from Alison Larkin’s experience with heartbreaking loss, this deeply funny love story blends stand-up comedy, songs, and theatre to bring audiences on a soul-healing journey through joy and the depths of sorrow to the heights of the human experience.
