Walking Under Falling Leaves is an original music-drama in 2 Acts; a fusion of Shakespeare, Mozart and Wagner with modern guitar music; a comedy/drama.

Serge is a former rockstar, now trying to make it as a writer/actor/director in Independent Theatre. He is workshopping a kind of autobiography - a show that documents his experiences during the decline and death of rock'n'roll. Five years ago his son, Francis, died. Now Serge and some actors are performing a rough version of the show for a potential producer. When his wife, Stacy Vee, turns up to investigate the show she is appalled to find out that it isn't the tribute to Francis she had thought it was.

Walking Under Falling Leaves is Distortion Forever's final work in their tetralogy. We are looking for actors/singers who are open minded, hardworking, creatively flexible, committed and generally cool to work with.
