An adaptation of a late 16th-century classic Chinese comic novel, Journey to the West, based on Anthony C. Yu's translation, takes as its point of departure the true story of a 17th-century monk and his fabled pilgrimage from China to India in search of sacred texts. Mixing whimsy with spiritual weight, Mary Zimmerman's script combines comedy, adventure, and satire in a moving allegory of human perseverance.
Presented by the County College of Morris Shakespeare and Company and the Department of Music, Dance and Performing Arts, the show will be performed April 25-27 at 7:30 p.m. in Dragonetti Auditorium, Student Community Center.
