Performed by Warren David Keith and directed by Joel Mullennix, this is the true story of Richard Alpert, aka Ram Dass, the famous Harvard psychology professor and spiritual seeker, who, along with Timothy Leary, started the psychedelic revolution and then, in the third of three life transformations, went on to become an international teacher on enlightenment. The production is travelling to Hawaii this weekend to perform the play for Ram Dass who has taken a keen interest in the play but is too frail to travel.
