"Set in 1866-1868, the years following the American Civil War, “Iron Irene” tells the story of two sisters and their fight for equality, family, and a better world. Upon the death of their parents, Cassie DeLanie is sent from her home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to live with her sister, Mrs. Irene Wright, who secretly became a widowed land owner in southwestern Wyoming. Written by Liz Falstreau and composed by Ashley Flanagan, Iron Irene: A Musical Fable is a new musical fable that tells the story of two sisters and their fight for equality, family, and a better life in post-civil war Wyoming."

"Iron Irene: A Musical Fable," has been chosen for MCL Chicago's Premier Premiers! Festival of New Musical Comedies. 

This project stems from Asher's involvement with Iron Women Productions in Chicago, IL, as Lead Orchestrator.
