UC Berkeley’s Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies presents “Pool of Unknown Wonders: Undertow of the Soul,” a new play by Philip Kan Gotanda, directed by Michael Socrates Moran. Performances run October 14–17 in Zellerbach Playhouse at UC Berkeley.

“However many begin, that many must arrive.”

In an unfamiliar world, six unexpected companions find themselves on a common journey, facing unforeseen tests to achieve an unknown goal.

Inspired by Hermann Hesse’s “Journey to the East,” Philip Kan Gotanda’s surreal new drama plumbs the depths of the human quest for meaning in a fresh, urgent parable on wholeness, identity, and belonging.
