WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Empire of the Trees is set in India in 1963. When Deborah, a young American woman living in New Delhi, strikes up a literary and romantic bond with a traveling Indian bookseller, she discovers she has a mysterious connection to ancient Indian myth. She tries to share her new awareness with her husband, an ambitious journalist, but clashes with his inter-cultural suspicions, and cruel facts of class and history. She seeks spiritual solace with the bookseller, and from the wise old Banyan tree in her yard - which causes her household to explode, and myth to spill into reality. Empire of the Trees was work shopped at the Lark Theatre and the William Inge Center for the Arts, and was a finalist for the 2009 Stanley Drama Award. The play was presented as a reading fall 2009 at the Kennedy Center's Page to Stage Festival and at Ensemble Studio Theatre. Directed by Sherri Barber Featuring: Rajesh Bose*, Taisha Cameron*, Dana Mazzenga, Graham Outerbridge* and Kunal Prasad* *performing courtesy of Actor's Equity Association.
