WATER FROM THE MOON is constructed in the unique form of a rock concert with a family memoir wrapped around it. A successful singer/songwriter struggles to overcome the legacy of an abusive childhood, The ultimate reconciliation of an Irish American daughter and her hard-headed father. Heartwarming, heartbreaking, but always with an emphasis on the absurd humor created by their acrimony.


Music and Lyrics by Rosemary Loar
Based on the book by Rosemary Loar & Robert W. Atwood
