Pregnancy Pact

Music by Julia Meinwald
Full-length musical
6 women, 1 man

15-year old Maddie is devoted to her three best friends and they are to her.  When Brynn gets pregnant, the friends all plan to get pregnant and raise their children together in their dream of a perfect life.  As other girls find out, the pact – and the dream – grows.  The bubble bursts when their secret is revealed, leaving each of the girls to face the hard realities of love, responsibility, and growing up.

Winner of the 2011 Weston Playhouse New Musical Award.  Developed in the Dramatists Guild Fellows Program, mentored by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
