Since the beginning of time, human beings have been compelled to travel impossible distances, search for answers to the unknowable and turn their focus into the deep inner workings of their own minds. Whether they are launching rovers to explore the inhospitable landscape on Mars, probing the mysteries of the human heart, or seeking the answer to the age old question “How may licks DOES it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?”, their thirst for discovery is insatiable.
For Quickies: Volume 14, we are pushing the limits and digging deeper with a line-up of plays that delve into our them of “Exploration and Discovery.” This year’s plays venture to a post-apocalyptic world, travel through life with board game characters, and search for lost dreams.
