Brightwater was a town in West Virginia, named after the untamed river that cut off its people from the rest of Appalachia. A town ruled by two households, both alike in dignity: had none. So when Rosie MacAleese fell in love with the son of her father’s nemesis…what on earth did she think would happen?

Black-Eyed Susan, formerly known asThe Ballad of Brightwater, has been developed through the ASCAP DreamWorks Musical Theatre Workshop, and was a finalist for the Dramatists Guild Fellows Program.
