Plot Synopsis

Laughing Daughter is a Country Rock/Americana Musical depicting the interwoven lives and loves of three very different couples.

Laughing Daughter, a 19 girl old Native American girl, bored with performing at local shows and possessing a beautiful voice, harbors a dream of being a star in the Nashville heavens. With her father’s reluctant blessing
she leaves the reservation, her father Storm Heart, and James her long-time faithful boyfriend to seek her fame.

Junior Johnson is a 45 year old singer/songwriter traveling the country performing at a variety of gigs, barely making enough to pay for his accommodation, meals and bar bills.
The down-home Jolene, slightly younger, and a dedicated life-long fan, has a secret and finally decides to declare herself.

Whilst trying to help the inconsolable James, the divorced Storm Heart, missing his estranged wife, Shell Flower, comes to terms with being separated from the two people he loves most.

Laughing Daughter weaves these three loves; their frustrations and their triumphs, into one braided whole, with the songs and melodies of the American Heartland, the story is warm, human and touching.

After 30 years of writing, the show is now ready for production and will premier on the 3rd September 2009 with a run of 12 nights (Thursday-Sunday for 3 weekends)at the appropriately named Indian Head Center for the Arts, Southern Maryland (30 minutes South of Washington DC)
