September 11th 2001, thousands of refugees from every culture and creed descend upon the doorsteps of Newfoundland. Villages like Gambo become the setting for a positive apocalypse.
In this surreal, inverted world, Christopher’s life pulls into focus and his rebirth is both arresting and comic. From Dublin to California to Gambo, Christopher embarks on a wild odyssey home for the birth of his son. With allusions to classical myth, PILGRIM is a bible-black comedy about a hard edged, misanthropic youth who finally discovers the world doesn’t revolve around him.
Written by award winning playwright Philip Doherty, performed by Rex Ryan (Best Actor nomination ’13) and directed by Aoife Spillane-Hinks, ‘PILGRIM’ weaves together a text rich with verbal pyro-technics, a haunting soundscape, and psychedelic visuals through a tapestry of grotesque worlds and outlandish characters.
