Orange a play by Aditi Brennan Kapil—inspired by and set in Orange County, Calif.—has its west coast premiere at South Coast Repertory, March 5-26. Seen through Leela’s eyes, the coastal county is a wondrous and thrilling place in a tale that is part rebellious teen thrill ride and part self-discovery. “This coming-of-age story is wrapped in an action-adventure thrill ride, about a young South Asian woman on the autism spectrum,” Kubzansky said. “It’s a powerful and profound journey that makes us laugh and moves us.” Kubzansky directs Orange on the Julianne Argyros Stage. 

The story follows Leela, a teenager from India who draws life’s important moments in her journal. When a family wedding gets boring, her rebellious cousin decides to run for it—with her boyfriend—and takes Leela along. As they careen through Orange County, navigating dangerous situations in a night-long wild ride, Leela challenges their view of her—and each other.  Download the discount tickets here
