On a small island in Indonesia, a wooden house balances on stilts over a churning sea. In this house Reverend David Holiday tries to convert a skeptical young local whose fate has become improbably intertwined with his own. At stake this night is the life of the young man’s father, the future of this island’s ancient culture and the happiness of an American family caught between worlds. As the night turns into morning, the fate of David’s haunted young son becomes the biggest question of all.
A world premiere by co-Artistic Director Randy Baker, the script of Forgotten Kingdoms was developed in Washington with the National New Play Network and Inkwell Theatre, in Houston with Wordsmyth Theater and in New York with Manhattan Theatre Works’ National Newborn Festival. Most recently it was developed in Malaysia and Indonesia, culminating in a staged reading with the Jakarta Players in January 2017.
