"Found and Forgiven"

Story of The Prodigal Son retold.

The timeless message of love and forgiveness comes to life in contemporary fashion through this musical retelling of the Story of The Prodigal Son. A family-owned construction company is brought to a point of crisis when a young son chooses to leave the family business. The perspectives of a loyal secretary, an underestimated older sister and a wise and loving mother help spice up the drama with feminine passion. The lure of easy money at the Equal Opportunity Casino is starkly contrasted with the reality of homelessness. Filled with humor and dramatic pizzazz, Found and Forgiven is a musical that challenges its audience to take another look at the Story of The Prodigal Son and to consider anew the power of forgiveness.
