Project Overview

Neighbors: A Fair Trade Agreement is probably the most challenging, creative, and rewarding show I’ve worked on to date. There is a certain child like simplicity in the pallet and silhouette yes, but this show has a lot of surprises up its sleeves (as do its costumes). This two-clown show calls for quick changes, a stylized aesthetic, extreme physical demands, soaking wet actors, and (spoiler alert) blood, guts, and a massive “food fight.”

Monica Titus’s costumes also have plenty to say about their wearers — and take a turn for the fun at play’s end when all heck breaks loose in the fanciful finale.
