Lyric Opera is proud to present the Chicago premiere of this work, whose 2016 world premiere was praised as “a near-perfect example of fast-flowing musical drama” by The New York Times.. At the height of the McCarthy era in Washington, D.C., Timothy Laughlin is eager to join the crusade against communism. A chance encounter with a handsome State Department official leads to Tim’s first job—and his first relationship with a man. Drawn into a maelstrom of deceit, Tim struggles to reconcile his political convictions and his forbidden love: an entanglement that will end in a stunning act of betrayal.
