The unique narrative of the musical emerges in a cozy guesthouse in Minnesota when times were tough during the Great Depression. It's a story that puts the spotlight on the lives of the individuals staying there - guests and long-term residents alike. All of them carries their own hidden struggles and what makes this play special is how it intertwines all these characters' lives.

An interview with The Marlowe revolves around how director Conor McPherson had never directed a musical prior to this venture and found himself revelling in the newfound experience. He highlights that when it comes to a straight show, the dilemma lies in entertaining everyone solely through the lines and portrayal. However, in a musical, there are moments where someone might suggest, “Shall we have a refreshing pause for everyone's benefit?” and you'd willingly affirm, thinking it sounds quite appealing.
