In the 90s, indie rock band Triplight was poised on the knife edge of fame. But just before their first album was set to be released, the band tragically disappeared. Until tonight, 20 years later, when their charismatic lead singer Willow Spark will emerge from hiding to reckon with a past that will push her to the brink of life and death.

Starring Kristen Sieh, written by acclaimed Australian female artists, singer-songwriter Greta Gertler Gold and playwright Alexandra Collier and directed by Mia Rovegno, Triplight is an irreverent, quirky and dark new musical that explores the precarious life of a musician in the nostalgia-strewn past of New York City - with an original score that fuses indie pop and 90s rock.
