This world premiere by Anthony Donald Kochensparger was presented alongside pool(no water) by Mark Ravenhill, directed by Mara Stern. Both pieces were performed in the same evening with opportunities to drink and discuss throughout the evening.
I was the associate director on this production with the Neo-Futurists, directed by Halena Kays. "Partners and performers Malic White and Molly Brennan both struggle with depression and rely on music to yank themselves out of despair. With the help of a live band and the audience (that’s YOU), White and Brennan summon the sacred powers of their heroes, Iggy Pop and Tom Waits, to write a song of their own."
