12-05-17 – New York City, NY>Philadelphia, PA – Songwriter Gordon Schwinn works at his piano to meet a deadline, irritated because he must write a song about spring for the children’s television host Mr. Bungee, who dresses as a frog. Gordon takes a break from his writing and meets his best friend Rhoda at a restaurant. During lunch, he clutches his head and falls face first into his meal. Rhoda calls an ambulance, and Gordon is taken to the hospital, where he’s administered an MRI. His neurosurgeon tells him that he has an arteriovenous malformation, and needs an operation. If he doesn’t have it, he could die or never regain the use of his faculties.

While in the hospital, Gordon contemplates his situation, with his mother, Rhoda, and his boyfriend Roger. Gordon’s greatest fear is dying with his greatest songs still inside him. After the operation, Gordon falls into a coma and while in that state, he hallucinates a surrealistic musical-within-a-musical starring the people in his life; and ultimately, the hallucination-Bungee leads Gordon back to consciousness and to Roger. He recovers slowly and his near death experience teaches him to re-evaluate and better appreciate the people and relationships in his life. With his life at last in balance, he is able to write again. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: Live Event
