PILGRIM THEATRE 2005
1815. Napoleon's final exile on the island of St. Helena. Torn between power and its loss, history and memory, haunted by the ghosts of Joan of Arc and Josephine, and plagued by an omnipresent chorus of sardonic rats,
Napoleon is the pivot point for a vividly theatrical and darkly comic meditation on the nature and perils of power and the quest for immortality.
"This Napoleon really is dynamite!"
"Incisive and moving."
"The haunted spirit of this troubled legend comes alive."
"You become rapt in their rapture."
"Harrington's witty dialogue favorably calls to mind Tom Stoppard's Travesties."
