Hank is struggling to keep his legendary rock club going amid changing times and changing tastes. When his beloved daughter, Lena, starts dating a rising star DJ, Hank must contend with the destructive power of the next big thing. Fresh from last year’s Off-Broadway hit Sex with Strangers, playwright and screenwriter Laura Eason (House of Cards) teams up with acclaimed director Kirsten Kelly (Slipping) for her return to the New York stage. Like a blast of feedback from a Fender amp, THE UNDENIABLE SOUND OF RIGHT NOW brings to hilarious and heartbreaking life the moment when Kurt and Courtney ruled, but Moby was just around the corner… About the Playwright Laura Eason is the author of twenty plays (original work and adaptation), a musical book writer and screenwriter.
