Amanda Shires is best known for her folksy, Americana sound. In 2017, Shires was named the Americana Music Association’s Emerging Artist of the Year and she frequently lends her voice and style to husband Jason Isbell’s band, The 400 Unit. But her new solo record, To the Sunset, moves away from her normal style, taking on more pop sounds with crunched guitars and layered vocals. Don’t miss her on the Folly stage playing hits from her new album on Friday, April 26th at 8 p.m.

Three characters are playfully positioned next to one another. They each have their own sense of reality, and maybe even sanity, around a terrorist suspect and a love affair being conducted exclusively via email. Which of these people are grounded in reality? Who is telling the truth? Who is to blame? Playwright Dipika Guha looks at the slippery slope regarding culpability and expectations, using absurdist humor as a powerful tool.
