Journey to the West
by Mary Zimmerman
Directed by Allison Arkell Stockman
This ancient Chinese legend tells the story of a Buddhist monk who travels from China to India in search of sacred scriptures. A rambunctious monkey, an insatiable pig and a fierce river monster join Tripitaka, the monk, on his epic adventure. Imaginative spectacle, action sequences and live music intertwine to create a world that is part vaudeville, part mystical dreamscape. Playwright Mary Zimmerman’s distinctive style has led to box office hits for Constellation in the past with The Arabian Nights & Metamorphoses.
Recommended for ages 13+.
