The Happiest Song Plays Last

A modern drama written by Quiara Alegria Hudes

At the dawn of the Arab Spring in an ancient Jordanian town, an Iraq War veteran struggles to overcome the traumas of combat by taking on an entirely new and unexpected career: an action-film hero. At the same time, halfway around the world in a cozy North Philadelphia kitchen, his cousin takes on a heroic new role of her own: providing hot meals and an open door for the needy.

The Happiest Song Plays Last is part of the Elliot Trilogy: Elliot: A Soldier’s Fugue at Teatro Paraguas, then the Pulitzer Prize Winning Water by the Spoonful at Adobe Rose, and Santa Fe Playhouse concludes the trilogy with The Happiest Song Plays Last.

“As ever, Hudes’ writing is poetic but wry, full of swagger and poetry. Oh, how the lines sing.” —Time Out NY
