ABOUT THIS SHOW
A twenty-year-old boy from Montana has a dream foretelling his death. This experience leaves him convicted that he only has eleven years left to live. As he travels across America to New York, collecting difficult questions about his existence, he explores the nature of life, love, death, and violence. He becomes a man through understanding that everything consists of love. Actor, musician and singer Stephen Ochsner delivers a new adaptation of Ivan Viripaev’s early text in fast-paced, rhythmic tour-de-force.
