Based on Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Emanuel Schikaneder.
In Magic Fruit Tami, an ex-gang member, sets out on a journey through an apocalyptic Los Angeles. Despite the many challenges Tami faces, including hunger, addiction, financial insecurity and a system she doesn’t really understand, she finds unexpected allies in strange places as she aims to reunite her family, find a home, and just maybe save the world.
Set in an alternate reality of mega droughts, methane leaks and temperatures, sea levels and property values that just keep rising, Magic Fruit is a cautionary tale about a future that could never, ever happen, because that would be insane. And we’re not insane…are we?
Magic Fruit is the culminating “bridge” show of the Hunger Cycle, a series of nine world premiere plays exploring hunger, justice, and food equity issues.
Featuring an award-winning design and production team including Composer Randall Robert Tico; Scenic Designer Nephelie Andonyadis; Costume Designer Meghan E. Healey; Lighting Designer Geoff Korf; Sound Designer John Nobori; Puppet Designer Lynn Jeffries; Video Designer Sean T. Cawelti; and Production Stage Manager Nikki Hyde.
