Lightsong, a seven episode audio play is Marilyn Felt's expression of love, admiration, grief, and hope in response to the death from cancer of her hugely talented musician son Josh Clayton-Felt. Over forty of Josh's songs are featured, threaded throughout the play.
Lightsong is a true story as far as earthly events are concerned-- not always word-for-word or person-for-person-- but the events all happened in the journey of a young musician. The spirit world that is brought in is fantasy, and it was inspired partly by a story that Bob Rosenthal, father of Josh's best friend Jeff, wrote on Josh's web site in the early days after his passing.
Lightsong had been completed and partially workshopped when Marilyn died, also of cancer, in April 2006. After her death Lightsong was professionally produced under AFTRA contract, directed by Wren Ross. It is now available on iTunes and on its own web site www.lightsongplay.com
