A fiery young man named Leif (Gregory Radzimowski) returns to the cabin where his father Sol (David Secunda), a novelist who suffered from progressive aphasia, struggled to write a final novel about the visionary Romantic poet and painter, William Blake (Kedrick James). With his reluctant girlfriend (Alysson Hall), Leif embarks on a hallucinogenic trip into the Blakean territory where his father became lost. Written by a Blake scholar, author of several ritual poetic dramas (including Sonnets to Orpheus which is a Paper Trails new play prize winner), the story draws on Blake’s letters, his marriage, and his three years in a cottage at Felpham. Several of Blake’s poems weave in and out of the action in the form of an original, live musical score (Meshe Mooette).
