Gulliver Returns

Lil’s husband has lost himself in Gulliver’s Travels, and now she has a mission of mercy to perform. No matter what the cost she must find a way to drag this broken man out of his fantasy. She must find a way to bring him home.

Raging, tragic and magical, Gulliver Returns is a haunting new play about the strange places we escape to when our world is torn apart.

From the company behind The Man Who Would Be King (“FlawlessTHE STAGE) and The Wonderful Discovery of Witches (“SpellbindingEXEUNT).
