THE PRECIPICE is an original dark fairytale that tells the story of two young girls from very different worlds, who are drawn together by the Goddess Lady Midnight. As the girls become women, they must navigate a narrow path to preserve their identities, friendship, and magic in a society bound by oppressive rules that want to keep them stifled and apart.
What began as a 5 song album with Bob Weir's band 'RatDog' developed into an epic original musical-a tour de force of cabaret, blues, lyrical poetry, jazz and pop- thanks to the Angel support of Bob Weir and the musical chemistry of Jeff and Miranda, 'The Precipice' was awarded theatrical development grants from the Paul Wattis Foundation, the Further Foundation and the Rex Foundation and has enjoyed multiple readings, including a three week workshop at Z Space Theatre.
