  • Overview
    Describes a journey, one which could start from any modern town. But it is also the very ancient journey that all humans have had to go on since we first wanted to understand ourselves and take responsibility for our world. The play is like a map of the ancient rite of passage - the journey through fire, water, earth and air. The journey must take us through both our social world and our mental and emotional world, or we spend our lives wandering and lost.
