A man in his garden, saving a lost friend, saving himself. This original play by Barry Cavin delves into the magical and spiritual world of William Cowper, the 18th-century English poet, who was convinced of his eternal damnation, fell into bouts of madness, wrote fervent hymns and anti-slavery tracts, and found peace in his bestiary gardens.

In the spirit of our 2020 production of Ori, we will be creating a "filmed theatrical," which will be made free and available to all.

This performance is sponsored in part by grants from the Florida Division of Arts and Culture and the City of Fort Myers.
