Nowhere Town: A Punk-Ass Musical, the Book and Libretto

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls.
I bid you welcome, from a drunken poet, to a cruel world.
Be seated, take your coats off, just kick back.
We have a tale for you tonight, my friends, the tale of Jack.
This is a tale of Love and Death.
This is a tale of those two thieves of breath.
This is a tale - we hope - to make your hearts swell.
This is a tale of how the living go to Hell...

Jack Flash is a punk rock star bent on self-destruction. When he picks a fight with the wrong thug after a gig, he finds himself not just at Death's door, but on the other side of it, in the No Exit Lounge and Bar in Limbo--albeit too drunk to have a clue where he is. There he meets an absinthe-soaked blues singer by name of Chorus, middle-man for Death and Jack's guide to the netherworld. As the two dissolute wastrels bond over their woes, Jack's tragic tale unfolds--of a true love found and lost, of Puck, the boy Jack couldn't save--and Chorus offers Jack that one last chance he wishes for.

In this full book and libretto for the stage musical--demo tracks on SoundCloud--our gay punk Orpheus must journey down into Hell itself--or at least one nightmareish cabaret franchise of it--to save the soul of the boy he loves from a demon that feeds on pain, nurturing misery to a terrible poison. And with Jack's bitter grief making him the juiciest morsel to that fiend, his own soul is as much in the balance as Puck's, if he can't do what has to be done.
