JASPER IN DEADLAND was originally commissioned by the Pasadena Musical Theatre Company (2011).
When the living world seems like too much, Jasper and his best friend Agnes always have each other. Dealing with pressures from school and their parents leaves them searching for understanding and love. When Jasper wakes up one morning and cannot find Agnes, an adventure to reunite begins with a dive into the swirling vortex of another land in the waters of Deadland. On his adventure, Jasper explores the underworld, meets interesting and dangerous people, and faces the demons within himself.
