We've gathered a beautiful ensemble of theatre makers from around the world to devise a new adaptation of Richard Brautigan's novel  IN WATERMELON SUGAR, a strange and dazzling meditation on the imperfection of human endeavors.  This story, set in a world where the sun shines a different color every day;  the houses are made of watermelon sugar; and each inhabitant is marked by dreams of gorgeous and terrible talking tigers,  cracks open the myth of an American utopia. With the gift of space from SPACE at Ryder Farm, Christopher Burris, Megan Carter, Pia Furtado, Jason Liebman, Tina Mitchell and Kristen Sieh will spend five days developing the novel’s text into a play.
