Opening January 17th Off Broadway @ Greenwich House Theater

A comatose man re-emerges into consciousness in this multilayered, multimedia theatrical event about the miraculous power of the brain to re-wire and heal itself. Blending cutting-edge science with masterful storytelling, Ovation Award-winning co-writers Alex Lyras and Robert McCaskill (The Common Air) team up with Grammy Award-nominated composer Ken Rich, Ovation Award winning visual artist Corwin Evans and three-time Emmy Award-winning editor Peter Chakos (The Big Bang Theory) to take the audience deep inside his memories, even as a hovering circle of family members and loved ones (all played by Lyras) divide into scheming camps over critical neurological decisions. A profound, often comedic tour of the collective unconscious.
