A love story. A play about women breaking free. A tale about haunted men questing to regain a Lost Paradise. This is a world premiere so actors should be prepared to adapt to continual script changes in rehearsals.

-Strong, living roles -- so expect to be onstage continuously. Ideal for those actors classically-trained in movement and voice. For those actors whom a crowd fears will lose control, escape the restraint of civilized acting, explode untamed from the arena right into the audience. For Actors: Who can work as an ensemble that bends time-- time before, time now, time after. . .Who can make an audience feel what video can never capture. Who can turn a role into a volcano of desire.
