About the Play
Makings of a Voice is a theatrical song cycle about discovering our individual identity within generational narratives. A personal  journey situated somewhere between the past and the present, between motherhood and daughterhood, between music and monologue, this intimate piece follows a messy trajectory into the heart of one woman’s story and provides a compelling argument for why our stories need to be told.
