Dennis Vickers edited the description of Passing Through Paradise Wednesday, January 30, 2013.
Passing Through Paradise is a narrative collage put together from snatches snipped from several story lines. A satyr-like character appears in Colorado, walks to Chicago gathering followers alone the way. There he stages Sophocles only extant satyr play in an aging theater. The theater is the center of a political squabble pitting history against greed. Greed wins. The major spokesperson for both sides is the same person, an unlucky-in-love young man whose heart is broken as the political frenzy dances around him.
