Violet is a musical with music by Jeanine Tesori and libretto by Brian Crawley based on the short story “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts.

To be presented at Hayes Theatre Co in Nov/Dec 2015, Violet is to be directed by Australian theatre icon Mitchell Butel with Musical Direction by Lucy Bermingham (Strictly Ballroom, Guilty Pleasures), Choreography by Amy Campbell (Guilty Pleasures, SYTYCD) and Set Design by Simon Greer (Man of La Mancha).
