Emily is currently writing the book, music, and lyrics for,

"When Two of Us Meet", a new musical. 

When Two of Us Meet is a story about triumphing over tragedy, never giving up hope, and the power of love. Inspired by true events, this narrative transcends the dark Armenian Genocide, sheds light on a vibrant culture, and portrays an unwavering familial love that resonates universally. 

In the idyllic village of Ghasmali, Armenia, 1915, Avo and Shogho, along with their progressive teenage children, find their lives upended as tension escalates between Ottoman authorities and the Armenian people. As the shadows of tragedy loom, the family grapples with love, loss, and the pursuit of freedom.

Amidst the chaos, the narrative takes us on a riveting journey around the world, from Armenia to the Republic of Georgia, then Havana, Cuba, and eventually to Los Angeles, CA, where the family faces discrimination and the daunting task of rebuilding their shattered lives. The relentless trials of illness, displacement, and separation become the crucible in which the family forges an indomitable spirit, embodying the resilience of those who persevere in the face of adversity.
