Failure: A Love Story
by Philip Dawkins
By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead. Tuneful songs and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. First produced in Chicago in 2010, this magical, musical fable shows that, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual’s successes or failures.
