Caliban, a young transsexual recovering from the boozy wedding reception of two lesbian witches, will need more than the magic of pronouns to survive this truly surreal odyssey into his own enlightenment as a Pagan saint. Caliban is symbolic and multidimensional. He is contradictory, unbridled, primordial in understanding the essence of things, and does not tolerate the fetters and limitations of any system. Masterfully adapted by Victor Sobchak from The Grammar of Witchcraft by David William Parry, pastor, gay, poet and Christian anarchist, this dramatisation will celebrate the enchantments of poetry, transgression, and self-discovery.
