EXCLUSIVE: Alibar and director Benh Zeitlin adapted the 2012 Sundance winner from her play Juicy And Delicious. The Beasts Of The Southern Wild world premiere received a standing ovation at the Eccles Theater early in the festival, with many festival attendees buzzing about its unique storyline centered on a young girl in a forgotten community in the Louisiana bayou. Alibar’s previous plays include A Friend Of Dorothy, Gorgeous Raptors, Mommy Says I’m Pretty On The Insides and Home Baking Made Easy, a musical about sex and Southern food. Fox Searchlight acquired Beasts Of The Southern Wild at Sundance and slated it for release later this year.
