[NoHo Arts District, CA] – The Undiscovered Country: The Skeptic’s Guide to the Afterlife, written and performed by Larry Davidson, directed and developed by Heather Dowling, and produced by Jessica Lynn Johnson and Soaring Solo Studios LLC makes its world premiere at the Hollywood Fringe Festival in June.
While on vacation in Mexico, Larry Davidson was overcome by the apparent effects of food poisoning. Airlifted to a San Diego emergency room, he flatlined. However, he didn’t stay dead. He came back to life. He did not emerge from the experience entirely unscathed. What he did have was a second chance at life.
In Hamlet, act 3, scene 1, Shakespeare speaks of death as “the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns.” Shakespeare was wrong. Larry Davidson did, piercing mysteries that have befuddled mankind since time immemorial. In his new show, Larry portrays a full array of characters in a performance that includes magic and illusion, puppets (which are like no other puppets you’ve ever seen), and even some comedy. Now you can bear witness into what is a journey into the hitherto unknown realm of what lies beyond.
