We would like to thank everybody for coming out and seeing the show. It’s been a great two weeks of performances, and every night had been a very unique and fun experience thanks to our diverse applicants who helped in building Lush Valley.
The photos of our Lush Valley applicants taken during the show can be found here.

A big thank you also to all our contributors who helped shape the show over the entire process through workshops, think tanks, readings, etc. It was a pleasure to be part of this great community.
