Unexpected Joy tells the story of three generations of female singers. Burdened by long-held family tensions, they share a week together where change is in the air. In modern day Cape Cod, Joy, a baby boomer and proud hippie, is holding a memorial concert for the other half of her popular musical duo, Jump & Joy. When her tightly wound conservative daughter and her sweet rebellious granddaughter arrive from Oklahoma, the sparks fly as one family seeks to find the common ground in their different values, dreams and goals. A heartfelt and hilarious story that celebrates diversity and acceptance, this new musical weaves folk-rock, pop and blues in bringing together a family that hasn't experienced true joy together for decades. Catch the New York premiere of this rousing production at York Theatre Company.
