i made the original music/sound design for this magical play. fan of Neil Gaiman? a must…
Hickorydickory explores what would happen if we all had an internal clock telling us the time of our death. Someone has tinkered with Cari Lee’s mortal clock, so she’s stuck at 17 for eternity. Now she’s the same age as her daughter Dale. But Dale’s worried about her own mortal clock the one that tells her the day and time she’ll die. Dad’s an expert clock-smith, but some timepieces are not meant to be tampered with..

I made original music for this and my lovely wife directed. another fractured fairytale.
In Mexico, an 11 year-old boy and his 8-year old brother are left behind with relatives they barely know when their widowed father goes to ‘the promised land’ to find work. We witness snapshots of their dreams (baseball!) and fears (devil in the mirror!) while they take care of each other, imagine their future and navigate a journey well beyond their years. Presented last spring as a staged reading at Goodman’s Latino Festival
