”Not sure how we found one another. Once we did, we couldn’t leave. Something wouldn’t let us.”
The season launches with the World Premiere of Exodus to Eden, written and directed by Oakland Theater Project Co-Founder and Co-Artistic Director Michael Socrates Moran.
This contemporary epic, created specifically for Oakland Theater Project Company Members and artists, follows the journey of an exiled people across America, through environmental devastation and into their dreams. From a dispossessed family searching for a lost future, to The Man, to Angels, to a girl named Edén, this production features an unforgettable cast of characters and an ensemble of 17.
Inspired by The Grapes of Wrath, the Book of Exodus, and the company members of OTP, Exodus to Eden is set in a time after history ends, and before history begins again.
Seeking hope in an era that feels often hopeless, the tale asks: What do we worship in America today? Can we change it? If so, what could we change it to that would renew our world?
