Based on the movie "Across the Tracks", Closer Than You Think charts the struggle of one family finding their way back to each other. Billy and Joe, teenage brothers from the wrong side of the tracks, have taken two very different paths, much to the dismay of their mother. One a gifted high school track star, one returning from a stint in prison, both desperately searching for something.  The challenges Billy and Joe face: economic depression, substance abuse, crushing self-doubt, and recovery, are timely and universal.  Rivalry, redemption and forgiveness, Closer Than You Think is a musical about what you are running from, who you are running to, and the struggle for one family to find its way.
