COMING IN MAY
Voices of Orange is a new documentary theatre production which will premiere virtually at Luna Stage in May 2021. Created at Luna Stage in a collaboration led by artists from Ping Chong and Company, the piece features the real life experiences of local individuals who grew up in Orange, New Jersey. Bearing witness to the different social, political, and economic forces that shaped the community over the course of the last century, and juxtaposing personal impact, resistance, and resilience in the face of historic disinvestment, Voices of Orange fosters a strong sense of community pride, and deeper understanding between and among Orange and surrounding communities.
