“Immerse yourself in a theatrical experience that challenges and delights with a tale as old and new as time itself.”
In every sense, the Mariner is everyman. He shows tenderness and cruelty, gets caught in disastrous situations that are partially of his own making, defiles nature and then gains appreciation for the natural world, and ultimately moves from random acts to accepting that there is a price associated with how we live our lives. Rough and uncouth, funny and harsh, iconic and unforgettable.
