Song of Joy is an autobiographical play that explores how perpetually immigrating as a child shapes an individual’s family and definition of “home.” Throughout the play, Carol embodies colorful characters from his family to share his experience navigating a life that is constantly in motion. From learning Carnatic music in a boarding school in India, to auditioning to be a ballerina in Texas, Carol seeks acceptance from those he loves while coming into his newfound “American” identity.

Laugh-out-loud funny, painfully honest, and sometimes heartbreaking, Song of Joy is a love letter to all immigrant parents who make immeasurable sacrifices in order to better the lives of their children. And how the children of those immigrants often have to balance what they owe their parents, with what they owe to themselves.
