Songwriting Challenge - 2020
Henry Crater‘s Your World/Safe is part of a musical about the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The night after the shooting, Cameron, a senior at Stoneman Douglas, grapples with grief and the urge to step into the world and take political action against gun violence. Sofia, another Stoneman Douglas student, consoles her badly shaken younger sister with whom Sofia took refuge in a cramped, dark closet during the shooting. David, a friend of Cameron’s, anxiously anticipates the local rally that he and Cameron have organized for the next day—a rally that will mark the beginning of the March for Our Lives.
