The Followers Artwork, One-sheet, and Script (First Draft) Action ⋄ Comedy ⋄ Family ⋄ Fantasy ⋄ Independent ⋄ Music ⋄ Musical ⋄ Other The Followers By Dylan Bank and Morgan Pehme At The Followers’ triumphant last show, forty years of their fans come together to bid farewell to the world’s greatest rock band and to figure out what to do with their lives now that the music might finally be over. Since the ’60s, The Followers have been the defining voice for generation after generation of America’s youth. Like The Beatles did for Liverpool, The Followers transformed the sleepy town of Effort, Illinois into a place of rock n’ roll legend. It was only fitting when the band picked their hometown as the site of their historic final gig. The only person not excited about seeing the show is GREY PIERCE, a talented young rocker who is also from Effort. He’s lived in the shadow of The Followers his whole life—he’s even stuck grinding out a living in a Followers cover band. But Grey’s got a plan to write himself into music history. Since all of the world’s biggest rock n’ roll fans will be camping out for days in his backyard to get tickets to The Followers show, Grey and his band are going to put on their own performance for everyone on line to prove that they’re the future of rock. As the line swells to over a hundred thousand strong, Grey finds himself in the center of forty years of hardcore Followers fans, and falls for a stunning young woman named EVER—the only person at the concert who’s never even heard a Followers song before. Everything is going according to Grey’s plan, but not everyone in his band is on board with Grey being in charge. IBSEN PAUL, his lead guitarist, is convinced Grey’s blowing their big shot for a girl he just met. On a whirlwind ride from the stadium parking lot to center stage at the biggest concert in history, Grey must find a way to keep his band together, win the girl, and become a star. But first, he must confront his worst enemy: the Followers themselves.
