Leela is different. A teenager from India, she draws life’s important moments in her journal. When a family wedding gets boring, her rebellious cousin decides to run for it with her boyfriend—and take Leela along. As they careen through Orange County, navigating dangerous situations from dusk to dawn, Leela challenges their view of her—and each other. A touching story about a young woman on the spectrum of autism and her search for her place in the world.

"...An Indian teen somewhere on the autism spectrum spends one adventurous night discovering The OC with her Americanized cousin and her cousin's skater-dude boyfriend in South Coast Repertory's West Coast Premiere of Aditi Brennan Kapil's Orange, not only a delightful cross-cultural comedic treat but a particularly apt choice for Orange County's premier regional theater"

"...It's not great when the most outstanding memory of this ninety minute production turns out to be the scenery. Not that the 'adventure' of a young Hindu woman who prays to a pantheon of gods goes begging.. the energy (in spite of the choices made by Ms Shah and/ her director Jessica Kubzansky to remain stiff and presentational... even when attacked on an Orange County beach) never lags. This is a slice of life featuring a segment of the OC population that is at once, traditional to its Indian roots (barely) and a window into the way most folks behave when given an opportunity to slip the bonds of convention and head into the night."

"...In the end, “Orange” isn’t so much a portrait of our county as it is an up-close look at how perceived outsiders are affected by its various vagaries – foibles we either embrace or resist, depending on who we are on the inside."
