Brand-new musical dramedy based on the real-life experiences of Jill Morrell and John McCarthy. The couple made headlines in 1986 when John, a British journalist, was kidnapped in war-torn Beirut. Frustrated by government inaction, Jill resolved to raise awareness and formed the campaign group The Friends Of John McCarthy. For more than five desperate years, McCarthy remained a hostage. Placing sharp focus on the very human elements of their situation, the show goes on to explore events beyond a joyful reunion under an intense media spotlight and with the fairy-tale expectations of an enthralled public.
