In this hilarious, true-life odyssey, Martin Dockery journeys from a dead-end job in New York down a dead-end road in Timbuktu, desperately searching for love, meaning, & a compass. The 2010 Piccolo Spoleto Festival hit, and winner of Best-of-Fest in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, London, Ottawa, Orlando, & Adelaide!
