Equinox One- The Shores of Disillumination is a controversial portrait of modern North American society. Both liberalism and feminism come under the gun in a complex drama that combines serious, analytical commentary with bold comedy. Replete with unique and beautiful images to accentuate the reading experience, Equinox One is the first in a trilogy of plays but can be read on its own without further reference to the ones that follow. The story involves Hermes, a hedonistic writer trying to survive in an environment very hostile to his personal and professional aspirations. The intellectual aggression of Hermes, however, ensures that the unrelenting waves of decadence never engulf him or his dreams. The play hilights many trends that have developed or are currently developing in North America- in politics, culture, and human relations. Discretion is advised for sensitive readers.
