Book and Lyrics by Sam Chanse; Music by Bob Kelly. Lobsters live forever - I mean, they don’t, but Thelma searches for their secrets to longevity. Under the pressures of death, decay, and demands to better herself, she strives to maximize her mind and body. But instead of catching her lobster, Thelma catches the infamous Skeleton Woman, a monster who lost all sensible and emotional feeling when her lover threw her from the cliffs. In their meeting, two women who have shielded themselves for so long come to recognize the ambivalence and importance of contact, and the pains and pleasures of being alive. Inspired by an Inuit folk tale and Chinese hungry ghost stories, Lobsters Live Forever delves into the impossibilities of perfection and the vulnerabilities of human connection.
