Retrograde (Adj.)

- Moving, occuring, or performed in a backward direction.

- Tending toward or resulting in a worse of previous state.

-Affecting memories of a period prior to brain trauma.


Retrograde is a new, queer musical about a young person who is forced to face their thoughts as a brain injury threatens to take away all the things they've know to be true for the past twenty one years. Sarah Flaim's raw, haunting, compositions paint pictures in harmony with Sav Souza's thought provoking and heartwarming words to tell the story of Z, as they search for an answer to the eternal question we all face:


Who am I?
