What if you could live forever? What if you were asked to keep a shocking secret? Young Winnie Foster suddenly finds herself faced with these dilemmas when she ventures from her routine one single summer morning. What she encounters at the foot of a magnificent tree in the woods on her family’s land brings her face to face with monumental life choices. A romance, a new family, perhaps eternal life? What follows is a whirlwind of events and a life-affirming adventure that The New York Times called “fearsome and beautifully written.” Considered one of the classics of modern children’s literature, this poetic story comes intensely to life on stage. Recommended for ages 9 and up

Dr. Edward Tick, author of The Practice of Dream Healing, Bringing Ancient Greek Mysteries into Modern Medicine, is known for his devotion to treating the invisible wounds of war. He highlights the holistic teachings of the Greek god of healing, Asklepios, whose healing practices dominated for 2000 years with temples from Asia Minor to Greece. The Asklepian tradition is the origin of medicine and psychotherapy in the Western world, whose most noted student, Hippocrates, is the founder of scientific medicine.
This is a public lecture + slide show on Asklepian principles and practices of divine engagement in the healing process for physical, psychological, or spiritual discord. A staged reading follows on philosopher-truthteller, Diogenes, first shared in Athens, Greece.

Winner! 2009 AATE Distinguished Play Award, Best Adaptation. A stunning yarn of piracy on the tropical seas. At the center of it all are Jim Hawkins, a 14 year old boy who longs for adventure, and the infamous Long John Silver, who is a complex study of good and evil, perhaps the most famous hero villain of all time.

“A gripping yarn with a genuinely rough-and-ready buccaneering spirit. It flies the flag for good-old fashioned ensemble story-telling.” – The Telegraph
