What do you save and what do you throw away?

Our disposable society has created tons and tons of trash. But the things we throw away arenít always tangible Ė sometimes they are the chance to change, to risk, to love. Sometimes trash is the byproduct of greed, a source of beauty, or the result of destruction. Sometimes itís just talk. Sometimes itís the difference between life and death. Join us as we mine ordinary trash for extraordinary stories.

True to its mission, Theatre LILA is creating a collage of music, movement, and scenes from writers across the country, bringing it all to life in unexpected ways.
Authors contributing to the piece include James Caputo, Ajanae Dawkins, Olivia Dawson, Lee Ehmke, Amelia Cook Fontella, Karl Iglesias, Jessica Lanius, Mike Lawler, Tyler Marchant, Andy Arden Reese, Gwendolyn Rice, and Katrin Talbot. An original musical score accompanying the evening was composed by Erin Crabb.

The cast of Trash includes: Kelly Coffey, Olivia Dawson, Karl Iglesias, Mara McGhee, young performer Miranda Dove-GarcŪa, and Michael Herold and Michael Huftile, who appeared in Theatre LILAís The Suitcase Dreams last season.
