Buddha - A Fantastic Journey
Written & Performed by Evan Brenner
Directed by John C. Reilly

"Refreshing, enchanting, poignant, revealing, compelling -- I loved it!"   Terry Byrne, The Boston Globe

"Riveting...shows the Buddha to be a very complex and mortal individual."   Jenna Scherer, The Boston Herald

"I was astonished...lively, moving, remarkably contemporary."   Bhikkhu Bodhi, author of In Buddha's Words

"Masterfully crafted...Delivered with joy, accuracy, and freshness.  A must-see!"   Mark Epstein, MD, author of Open to Desire & Thoughts Without a Thinker

PROGRAM: The life of the Buddha in his own words - the evolution of his thought, his triumphs, and the rarely portrayed tragedy at the end of his life.

The man we know as the Buddha lived in Northern India around 500BC and introduced the teaching known as Buddhism.  Approximately 300 years after his death, an extensive oral history of the movement was written down, carried and copied throughout Asia, and this canon became the taproot of the entire Buddhist tradition.  Framed in a most unusual and personal context, this original one-man play brings to the stage these authentic texts to enact the extraordinary life of the man, start to finish.

The Buddha considered his own life a model for all our spiritual struggles saying, "He who knows me, knows the Dharma."  It's no dry tale -- The Buddha's life stands among the great archetypal adventure stories.
