DESCENDANTS (Burlesque Underground)

DESCENDANTS (Burlesque Underground)


"When I grow up...I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
That you have to fight beneath the bed each night
To be a grown up...
Just because you find that life's not fair
It doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
Nothing will change..."
When I Grow Up 'Matilda the Musical' - lyrics by Tim Minchin
The year is 2040.
The 50's revival is in full swing. The technological age has yielded all manner of new gadgets and knick knacks to further separate human beings from each other while keeping their fingers on the pulse of the world. 'Razor Pop,' a heady mix of soda rock, 80's retro and 90's grunge, is all the rage...and kids bounce between the illusion of class and the intoxication of decadence in the form of party drugs 'Bliss,' 'Apex' and 'Ambrosia.'
Within the grounds of the Black Family Manor, the descendants of the 7 families gather once again for their yearly reunion, to celebrate the life and commemorate the death of their father.
Amidst the milkshake and candy, by the flash of neon lights, each of the family heirs share their tales of love, lust, betrayal and lies trying to piece together his final days in the hopes of once and for all finding the answer to the family's best kept secret:
Who killed Jasper Black?
Perhaps, with the help of their guests and each other, the children may finally put the past to rest...and learn little about themselves along the way.
Join the denizens of the Burlesque Underground for an evening of whodunit whimsy and melodramatic madness as they take you on a journey 20 years in the making.
Forget the millennials and Gen Z.
Generation Alpha is coming.
Be afraid.
