Audio play about a magical peach and the unexpected consequences of its discovery

The Br’er Peach National Tour returns home!

Br’er Peach is an audio play in three episodes.

By Andrew Saito
Directed by Desdemona Chiang

Produced in collaboration with The Parsnip Ship in association with Business Lunch Productions

 

Vonda’s luck changes overnight when she finds a giant magical peach. At first bite, she’s thrilled that years have melted off of her elderly face and body, and she can’t wait to share it with her husband, Waylon.

But their celebrations quickly become complicated by the surprise birth of their son, Momotaro—who looks nothing like them!

When a raccoon steals the magical peach, Momo bravely sets off into the wilds of Georgia to rescue it, meeting animal friends and foes along the way.

Back at home, Vonda drowns the grief of her losses in credit-card debt while the evil AmazOni Enterprises encroaches, buying out her neighbors.

Can Momo save the peach? Can Vonda save her house? And can they become a happy family against all odds?

Please note that Br’er Peach may or may not be appropriate for your family: it contains a short sex scene with descriptions of body parts, some bleeping/implied cursing, and discussions of death and dying. We think most kids over 12 will enjoy Br’er Peach, but if you’d like more information to help you make an informed choice, we’re happy to discuss, contact us with questions.

Funded in part by the Fleishhacker Foundation and the California Arts Council.  Br’er Peach won the 2020 Rella Lossy Award.
