University of Texas New Play Festival: The Orange Garden

So stoked to be asked to compose music for this, the graduating play of graduate playwright Joanna Garner and Directed by the fantastic Alexandra Bassiakou Shaw.  I had the pleasure of working with Joanna on her play 100 Heartbreaks which was a honky tonk musical.  This is so different.  Set mostly in Iran in the 1970’s this play explores social differences, love, and geographical displacement.  I had a blast making the music and used the lovely voice of Erin Ivey on much of the soundtrack.  The play runs April 15-April 23, 2016 in the Oscar G. Brockett theater.  Check it out!
