Hero's Journey premiered at Writopia Labs (New York, NY). It was the winner of the fourth New Voices One-Act Competition for Young Playwrights.
Young Theos has journeyed far and wide to complete his quest and retrieve an all-powerful amulet that will restore balance to the world. But just before claiming it, he is interrupted by his old mentor, Haroldicus: Theos cannot take the amulet until he completes his hero's journey—that is, until he fulfills all the steps of the traditional hero's narrative. As Theos takes on this challenge, he'll grapple to find true love, overcome temptation, face tragedy, and perhaps even learn something along the way.
