This new work is inspired by Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, who went "In Search of the Miraculous" by building the smallest sailboat known to man in an attempt to cross the ocean. He was determined lost at sea, never to be found. This play is a meditation on those who have disappeared and the people who continue to search for them. Join us as we re-write history and ask, "What if a miracle were found?"
