Ingrid is an inquisitive, adventurous woman, dedicated to her husband Osvald - a proud but lousy painter. In a blaze of daring and a stab at stardom, the frustrated couple steal the iconic painting The Scream, and replace it with a sample of Osvald’s terrible work. But when the painting comes to life, it howls truths that push their relationship, and their lives, to the brink of extinction. In this musical comedy fantasy, reality hilariously warps and invites us to awaken in a new world, where we laugh at our perceptions of art, love, life and death.
1. See Me
Ingrid, shy and inexperienced, has connected with Osvald, who believes himself to be a great painter—while he seeks to impress her, she yearns for a human connection.
2. Isn't That Nice
Ingrid tries to bolster Osvald’s fragile ego by reading complimentary reviews of his painting The Table—the problem is, she is making them up.
3. Scream Comes Alive
The iconic painting comes to life, prompting Ingrid to realize her worst fear: that she doesn’t believe in her husband after all.
