Where Has Joshua Gone?

Written by Jane Houston Green

Performed by Nick Tomlin and Jane Houston Green

An older couple are abandoned on a remote dirt road in West Africa. As night descends over the surrounding bushland the rebel factions, local bandits and poisonous snakes become less of a threat than the gremlins emerging from their own relationship.

 

Against a background of noisy cicadas and rhythmic drumming Michael and Harriet must journey through who they are, and what they have been, whilst facing the passions that drive them and the fundamental nature of their marriage. Choosing to be in denial is not an option as it changes nothing but will love be enough in the final revelation?
