About this work:
The text for Thursday was conceived and written by two close friends, Bridget Meeds and Kenny Berkowitz, both excellent writers who possess an acute and often exquisitely wry sense of humor. Each movement attempts to paint a literary picture of the central character by introducing various people who are related to her. The work has six short movements, each one representing a different character.
