A concert presentation of a new Broadway-bound pop musical by Grammy-nominated Nashville songwriter Jamie Floyd and award-winning playwright Mêlisa Annis. This lush musical drama reimagines what we know of history as we follow Katherine of Aragon from the battlefields of Flooden to the greatest battle of her life, the battle for her title and Crown. 

What others have said...

"It is a wonderful thing when a dazzling talent announces itself and better yet when it is seen and acknowledged... The world need your plays, now more than ever, Mêlisa." Award Winning Playwright, Theresa Rebeck

"Mêlisa doesn't write one kind of play. She won't put herself in a box. She has infinite interests and she is not afraid to write about them. Her curiosity takes her to dangerous places. She is brave. And also a lot of fun." -Emmy Nominee, Cusi Cram

The Inheritance of a Long-Term Fault - directed by Vanessa Morosco, produced by Clutch Productions, 2023.

"An extraordinary play that explores how the societal structures across many cultures have shaped cultural interactions and defined what is viewed as societal norms to the present day. It is a provocative, thought-provoking look at how colonial patriarchal behaviors and attitudes about women’s roles persist into the present day. It is a show worth seeing and, more importantly, exploring the ideas engendered by it." - TheatreScene

"...It’s a fair bet that no one has envisioned, planned and pulled off a creative endeavor as expansive as “Of Spacious Skies.” - John Moore, True West Awards

“We often use the phrase ‘a singular talent for storytelling’ to describe part of our selection criteria for playwrights. Mêlisa Annis has that very singular talent.  Mêlisa explores intimacy, trust, abandonment, abuse of power, and relationship dynamics — all told with her characteristic dark wit and deep wisdom. Mêlisa can make us laugh and make us uncomfortable, all while keeping us on the edge of our seats.” - Artistic Director Parity Productions, Ludovica Villar-Hauser

"...A taut, very funny, and brilliantly played dance of wits and emotions" - Jon Sobel, BlogCritics on Charlie's Waiting
