“Fresh, experimental, mythological”
Tyler Jeffreys, Theatrius

“An ever-intriguing story that gives you a whole lot to contemplate long after you’ve left the theater”
Sam Hurwitt, Mercury News

A fascinating attempt on the part of one of America’s most versatile playwrights and the Ubuntu Theater Project to engage with a 21st century American problem—a misunderstanding of trauma and how to overcome it.”
John Wilkins, The Free Audience

Pool of unknown WONDERS:

by Philip Kan Gotanda
directed by Michael Socrates Moran

AUG 31–SEP 23

"However many start must finish. However many begin, that many must arrive."

In an unfamiliar world, six unexpected companions find themselves on a common journey, facing unforeseen tests to achieve an unknown goal.

Inspired by Hermann Hesse's Journey to the East, Philip Kan Gotanda's surreal new drama plumbs the depths of the human quest for meaning in a fresh, urgent parable on wholeness, identity and belonging.
