From the creative minds of composer Georgia Stitt and playwright John Jiler comes a dynamic look at a family of musicians and their role in the changing landscape of sound in this country. Big Red Sun tells the story of Eddie and Helen Daimler, swing musicians in the 1940s. As the story moves to the 1960s, their teenage son, a budding songwriter, unearths a dark family secret that changes everything. Featuring a five-piece band, this family drama covers the simple melodies of Kern and Berlin all the way to the beginnings of rock and roll.
