Description

Cross The Shifting Sands by Mark and Jake Productions in association with Hook Hitch Theatre Directed By Paul Taylor Written by Mark King and Jake Addley L Frank Baum is one of the most famous authors of all time, but what do we really know about the man who gave us the gift of Oz? A childhood plagued by solitude, loss and loneliness ignited and fuelled the most wonderful imagination, inevitably sparking what was to become a lifelong passion. He created a special and intricately detailed place in his mind, a place beyond the rainbow where he could forget about his troubles and chose to share it with the world. Join us as we delve into Baum’s imagination and explore his whirlwind life. Cross The Shifting Sands is a captivating, funny and touching play inspired by true events from the life of L Frank Baum. A tale told beautifully by talented and accomplished actor Jake Addley. An entertaining yet emotive piece of drama that will move you to tears. From the creative team who brought One Fine Day to Edinburgh in 2011 and enjoyed five star reviews, a Stage Must See and a nomination for a Stage Best Solo Actor award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
