Orange Julius

After being poisoned by Agent Orange in the jungles of Vietnam, Julius is dying. Nut, his queer daughter, tries to reconnect with her father as one man to another by caring for his decaying body, sorting through her childhood memories, and diving into war movie fantasies. As worlds and identities blur, Nut finds herself fighting for her father’s life in ways she never expected.

    Devastating and gorgeous. Orange Julius is a play that resonates. I love this script and all of its theatrical potential. There are so many reasons why we need this play on the American stage and beyond, please continue to stage, and teach this script.

    A play that's as fluid as memory itself, it dips in and out of moments that intersect and connect beautifully. I love this play.

    An episodic/time-shifting play that dances on the intersection of gender, history, war, violence and masculine expressions of intimacy. Deserves multiple close reads, as it is almost cipher-like in its symbolic layering of meaning, images and histories.
