Hans Christian Andersen, nearing the end of his life, is haunted by old doubts, old sins, and the inspirations of legendary tales.
Writer Hans Christian Andersen is close to death. His shadow has become unmoored and, with the assistance of two other dreamlike figures, challenges the writer, forcing him to consider the choices he's made in his life, and if the work he's created justifies them.
Andersen - David Klein
Shadow - Neil David Seibel
Hans Christian - Pascal Portney
Young Woman - Kimie Muroya
Young Man - Stephen Baltz
