Underground, by writer Vivienne Glance is a new play featuring original songs.
The Cellar Bar must close and on its final nights, friendships are tested and secrets unearthed.
Tormented by her past, Rhizzy hides from the sunlight, singing her moody, heartfelt tunes in clubs and late-night bars. Music is Rhizzy’s joy and refuge, and her songs reveal the loves and losses of her life. As the inevitable end for this haven of underground music draws closer, Rhizzy becomes closer to revealing the secret she has kept for years.
Esther, the pragmatic owner of the Cellar Bar, can’t understand what all the fuss is about. She’s looking forward to making her new bar a success. Meanwhile, her Uncle Zac still misses his daughter years after her death and claims to know who killed her. Bitter accusations, anger and grief tempt Zac to take drastic action.
As the demolition of the bar begins, with sunlight streaming through the cracks, Rhizzy returns to sing one final song.
