This Is Now

This Is Now (an original musical)

Two women, newly reacquainted childhood friends, embark on a road trip together. They are opposites on the surface: Sarah is organized and fretful, while Emily is spontaneous and untroubled. On the road, the spontaneous one leads, while the careful one is forced to grow.

Once they arrive in New Orleans, their roles and relationship become less clear-cut. Soon they separate, with Sarah returning home and Emily continuing on her adventure.

They are next seen some time later, each dissatisfied with both the role she has been accustomed to playing and with the pendulum swinging entirely the other direction.  When the friends unexpectedly reunite, they each have realized that both ways of approaching life are needed to make a balanced personality.  In other words, Emily could be a little more like Sarah, and Sarah could be a little more like Emily.

Ultimately they come to understand that they’ve always had a little of each other within themselves…their friendship has simply encouraged and given each of them permission to embrace the Emily and the Sarah in all of us.

Who is the lucky one? Who’s taken bigger chances?
