Working for the liberation of all beings everywhere. Bringing higher consciousness to the planet, one eternal moment at a time.
Norton Street, a play by E.J. Gold, is a thought-provoking play that takes the audience on a journey beginning in the Magic Theater. The characters Bornless and Mike find themselves in this theater, which is not really a theater, but rather a place where the giant plasma widescreen shows you a video of your most recent lifetime. Bornless is seeing his lifetime projected on the screen, and he reviews it to note any changes he would like to make next time through the game.
As the play progresses, Bornless and Mike decide to leave the Magic Theater and head to Norton Street. Bornless built the Norton Street gaming level himself, and he has been working on it for over seven billion billion years. However, he still feels that the "game", which some identify as life on planet Earth, is not finished somehow.
The play explores deep philosophical themes, such as the nature of reality, the illusion of life, and the role of free will in shaping our existence. In offering a unique perspective on the intrinsic nature of existence, it challenges the audience to think deeply about their own lives and the choices they make. The play's unique blend of humor, drama, and existential questions keeps the audience engaged and entertained.
The characters in the play are well-developed, and their interactions are both humorous and poignant. Bornless and Mike's banter is witty and amusing, and their relationship is both complex and endearing. The play's dialogue is sharp and thought-provoking, and the script is full of memorable lines that leave a lasting impression with the audience long after the play has ended.
