Featuring a live, mostly improvised soundtrack composed and performed by La Lucha pianist John O’Leary, the play will make full use of the unique Timucua space. Orlando playwright Joseph Hayes has produced “Tom Waits For No Man” and “Bucket Boy” at the Timucua white house to standing room audiences; this show should be no exception.Find out more »
