The 8th Land

Easter Island. Is it a confounding mystery or one of the greatest environmental tragedies of modern times? William Maranda's The 8th Land is a play written in the classic Greek style of Aeschylus with music and dance, masks and chorus.  Set on Easter Island in a time when the plentiful palm forests of that land have been reduced to one lone palm tree, the last ruler of the "Eighth Land" contemplates the future of his people and his obligations to his gods.
