ABOUT THE PLAY
"John Bunyon's 'little book' (as he called it) is an allegorical adventure story, ablaze with color and character, and fueled by the inner urgency of a true spiritual quest, relentlessly plunging forward from incident, entanglement, to escape into new danger, ever onward. It is a work of remarkable humanity and keenly observed realism...On the surface it is simple enough to be beloved by children, yet a fascinating favorite of generations of adults ranging from Charles Dickens and Robert Luis Stevenson, to Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams. ...
"This dramatic adaptation faithfully follows the adventures, utilizing the straight-forward English dialogue without alteration. ...
"THE PILGRIM'S PROGRESS has seen an extensive national tour by the Everyman's Players, followed by an Off-Broadway engagement in New York City's Gothic Riverside Church."
- Orlin Corey (adapter)
Of THE PILGRIM'S PROGRESS...
"This is the great merit of the book, that the most cultivated man cannot find anything to praise more highly, and the child knows nothing more amusing."
- Dr. Samuel Johnson
