November 11-December 4, 2016
90 minutes, no intermission
On the eve of a family wedding Leela, a young woman on the autism spectrum, sneaks off with her cousin on a joyride through Orange County. Orange chronicles Leela's adventures over the course of one ill planned night full of detours, thrilling heights, mythic encounters, a nine-year-old villain, and the search for a perfect orange. A soulful and hilarious exploration of youth, fearlessness, family, and difference, Orange navigates the cusp between childhood and adulthood.
Mixed Blood Artistic Director Jack Reuler directs this inventive coming-of-age tale. Presented on a corridor stage and flanked by projected illustrations, the Swiss army knife of a set fluidly transforms from an OC beach to the top of a billboard, taking the audience on a journey inside the mind of a singular young woman
