The Girl Born Twice
In a “what if” scenario, the U.S. Constitution is suspended and America reverts to ancient Rome’s bread and circuses – modern technology replaces the sword and executions are televised. Everything not approved by the governing powers is forced underground – from music to Faith.
A 17 year old female runaway becomes an unlikely prospect and a cathartic agent overturning dictatorial domains using the power of music. The narrative, which features The Lightwalk Theatre Players, is enhanced by a wide variety of guitars, from folk with Suzanne Vega and Nick Drake, to the progressive sounds of Steve Morse, Marillion, Terje Rypdal, Metallica and lots more.
Produced and written by yours truly (George Maida) The Girl Born Twice is based on one of my short stories in conjunction with a short story by N.Y. columnist Mark Alessio. This special broadcast of The Electric Croude features new elements for this airing in addition to digital remastering.
