PROJECT SYNOPSIS

Piece 1: Disrobing and leaving the monastery, a monk goes to stay with his brother, a struggling artist, who puts his faith to the test.
Piece 2: A suburban family find themselves lost in the jungle, where they encounter reluctant cannibals.
Piece 3: A salesman ventures into the underworld to rescue his lost love.

Additional Comments:

These are three quite distinct plays. One is a farce (30 minutes), the other a satire (15 minutes), and the last a ritual poetic drama (60 minutes). The musical element is higher in the first two. The last is more movement-oriented.
