About the World Premiere

Emery Harris has lived alone in a treehouse named Mabel for over a decade performing research on plants. Except for her overbearing sister Hazel, Emery’s only connection to the outside world is through her YouTube channel where she documents her research and has garnered several thousand followers. No one is more stunned than she, though, when strangers begin gathering beneath Mabel, chanting and singing. As the crowd grows larger and louder, Emery learns she’s been unwittingly elected as her followers’ botanical, new-age messiah. A follow-up to Deborah Zoe Laufer’s hit play Be Here Now, this warm-hearted world premiere comedy studies the power of plants and the idiosyncrasies of people.

Advisory

Rooted introduces you to memorable human characters named Emery, Hazel and Luanne - and memorable plants named Mabel, Cynthia and Gerald, among others. While the plants don't use strong adult language and explore mature themes like mental health, the humans do, so we recommend that human audience members be at least 14 years or older to attend.
