"September 21, 1938. An unexpected hurricane hits New England devastating the Rhode Island coastline: A marriage stumbles. An ex-wife invades. A car stalls, the rain comes, the wind blows, a tidal wave smashes."

"It’s 1871. Wealthy Englishman James Watson’s world is shattered by his mother’s death and the revelation that he is adopted and Irish. Discovering his birth mother lives in America, he travels there on an epic journey to find his true identity. Sweeping melodies with Irish flavor carry this dynamic tale. God’s Country was performed at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in July 2013."
