A young American poet arrives in London at the turn of the century, falls in love with a troubled dancer and has his fortune told by Madame Blavatsky. Each tarot card triggers a vivid scene from his turbulent future. Yeats in the tower, the Satanist Alister Crowley, and cranky Ezra Pound in the mad house are there; as well as Oscar Wilde among some French ladies of easy virtue, a shell shocked Everett in no man's land, the bitter ballplayer Rex, and the manic Captain Blood. At a wild seance, Wilde's ghost is summoned to discuss God and chocolate eclairs. This poetic play traces the young American's search for his elusive love, God, and the meaning of art in a stunning tapestry of memories and nightmares. This play is part of the author's series Pendragon Plays.
Anima Mundi was first produced on January 29, 1992, by the Village Theatre Company in New York City. The production was directed by Henry Fonte and made possible by a grant from the New York State Council for the Arts.
