NOW WE ARE SIX, a devised piece based on the writings of A.A. Milne. University of the Arts. 2017

“An ensemble of six actors create an original stage adaptation of A.A. Milne's When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six. The piece explores the complexities and joys of growing up- whether we be six or eighty six. Six friends make their annual trip to Galleon's Lap to reconnect to the truest parts of themselves through a collection of songs, stories, and dances.”

I had the pleasure of Music Directing and Composing for this production! Since the piece was devised, there was a mix of my original music with music that I helped craft in the rehearsal room with the cast. As such, it was a little difficult to pinpoint who created exactly what. But, I feel like that’s the mark of a successful collaboration!
