Tibet Does Not Exist
Nicu’s Spoon’s newest production is TIBET DOES NOT EXIST, and Director Pamela Butler and actor Scott David Nogi stop by to discuss the show and it’s humorous, theological angles.
Here is what their website says about the show:
The play is about everything from politics to religion to the environment to love to movies. The action takes place in the fictional town of Winston, Connecticut, near Yale University. A Tibetan Buddhist monk, Buton Rinpoche, visits with several college professors â€” but the action particularly focuses on Rinpocheâ€™s relationship with a professor of economics, Thomas Walsh. Rinpoche engages Walsh in a series of often humorous conversations about everything under the sun, and tries to convince the cynical Walsh that compassion, wisdom, and tolerance are critical qualities in todayâ€™s society â€” qualities, in fact, that can ensure the survival of mankind. With the turmoil in Tibet making recent headlines, Tibet Does Not Exist takes on special meaning.
