Why I Wrote Lightsong

Lightsong is Marilyn Felt's expression of love, admiration, grief, and hope in response to the death from testicular cancer of her hugely talented musician son Josh Clayton-Felt. Over forty of Josh's songs are threaded into the play. Lightsong was originally an animated feature film script but due to the unlikelihood of its production in that form rewritten as a seven part audio drama. It had been completed and partially workshopped when Marilyn died, also of cancer, in April 2006.

Marilyn's career as dramatist began with Acts of Faith, a project in a play writing class that, amazingly, premiered off-Broadway. Her second play, Asher's Command won a 2001 Kennedy Center Production Grant for New American Plays.
