After a successful run at The Goodman Theatre in Chicago, David Cale’s newest full-length piece debuts at The Public Theater June 13 - July 14.

Growing up, writer/performer David Cale escaped his parents’ fraught marriage by singing in his bedroom and tending to birds in his backyard animal hospital. Lush songs, featuring a six-piece orchestra, and an intimate portrait of his mother unite in Cale’s vivid musical memoir of hope, family, and transcendence. Cale returns to The Public after appearing in Deep in a Dream of You and The Total Bent.

WE’RE ONLY ALIVE FOR A SHORT OF TIME was developed in workshop at TWEED’s Sundays at Seven series at Pangea.
