Description

Matt Gould & Griffin Matthews are the young creators of the musical “Invisible Thread", winner of the 2012 and 2014 Richard Rogers Award for Musical Theater.

“Invisible Thread” takes place in 2005 Uganda when Matthews arrives as a volunteer from New York City to help build a village school and escape his church’s probing into his sexuality. But when he falls into a complicated relationship with a group of destitute, orphaned teenagers, he becomes obsessed with a mission that will change his and their lives forever. Told through personal accounts of triumph and tragedy against the backdrop of heart thumping Afro-pop music, “Invisible Thread” tackles the question: is changing the world even possible?
