First performed in 1971, this epic fantasy which is set in a lush, mystical forest features James and Rosie; a pimp and his whore, childlike characters who find themselves unable or unwilling to leave the surreal maze. Deep within they discover the fairytale-esque Edmund and Anastasia who set in motion a rocketing exploration of innocence, illusion and freedom.
