Vol.1: The first three texts in the collected works span the world's literature. The epic of Gilgamesh - created in the Sumerian cradle of civilization - is the earliest story we know, yet contains the deepest question man can ask: `How can I transcend death?' The story of Marouf the Cobbler is an oriental tale taken from the works of Sir Richard Burton, the great Victorian explorer, and is dedicated to the genius of that world-renowned story-teller, Scheherzade. Goethe's `Faust' needs no introduction. The translation of Part One in this collection is pungent and unusual. The Caravan of Dreams Touring Theater - also known as the "Theater of All Possibilities" - was founded in 1967 by director Kathelin Gray, and dramaturge Johnny Dolphin.

Review quote

"These plays are possessed of strange Oriental powers. Two are set in Asia and Faust, though European, is no less hypnotic...dramas with rich and varied possibilities--quite marvelous." --Reginald Massey, Asian Post, London "A modern American equivalent of the Noh pieces of Japan and the ancient Indian Natya..." --Fernau Hall, Daily Telegraph, London "Great!" --William Burroughs
