Voyage Theater Company Presents the World Premiere of DON'T LOOK BACK

Voyage Theater Company announced today it will present the world premiere production of DON'T LOOK BACK, a new play written by Adam Kraar and directed by VTC's Founding Artistic Director, Wayne Maugans.

In DON'T LOOK BACK, God is about to rain fire down upon the city of Sodom. The Angels have sent Lot, Edith and their two daughters fleeing into the mountains toward Zoar. Their only command: "Do not look back!" Desperate for the safety of her girls, Edith finds herself caught between her husband's zealotry, her love for her family - and her passion for freedom.

"Inspired by religious texts, Adam Kraar's retelling uncannily reverberates with our current moment," says director Wayne Maugans. "Each day we are confronted with global pandemics, the leveling of cities, forced migration, extreme climate events, and now the passionate debate surrounding a woman's right to choose her own destiny. DON'T LOOK BACK weaves all of these together in a funny and intimate story of one family's quest for survival."

"Every production I've seen at Voyage Theatre Company transcends the many cultures portrayed, revealing something universal about what it means to be human.," says playwright Adam Kraar. "I can't think of a better home for this play, about a woman caught between ancient strictures and her very modern need for self-determination."
