The Gravedigger's Lullaby

Will is thrilled to provide original music for Jeff Talbott's THE GRAVEDIGGER'S LULLABY playing off-Broadway at The Beckett Theatre.  

Here's how the show is billed: Baylen is a gravedigger, a working-class man trying to keep food on the table in a world where other people make the rules.  There’s a baby who can’t sleep at home, and plenty of holes to be dug.  But a chance encounter with a rich young man may bring the hope of a different life.  What will Baylen do?  THE GRAVEDIGGER’S LULLABY is a bold and gripping new contemporary drama about a time that has passed.  And how little things have changed.
