This original one-man play brings to the stage the life of the Buddha in his own words — the evolution of his thought, the triumphs and the rarely portrayed tragedy at the end of his life.
The man we know as the Buddha lived in India around 500BC and introduced the teaching known as Buddhism. Approximately 300 years after his death, an extensive oral history of the movement was written down, carried throughout Asia, and this canon became the taproot of the entire Buddhist tradition.
Relying exclusively on these ancient texts, the show enacts the life of the man and development of his philosophy. It’s no dry tale — The Buddha’s story stands among the great archetypal adventure stories.
