This is play is very loosely based on Jack Kerouac’s On The Road.

You are here. Deep in the Nevada desert, where a lone poplar tree stands tall, its branches laden with shoes. Alexandra, usually so sedentary, is travelling across America to stand before that tree. It bears witness to the passage of travellers, transforming their shoes into bits of eternity.

Above all, the road leads to Jack. Her grandfather, the tireless traveller, has been everywhere, except in her life. Along the way, she meets people who guide her, in the footsteps of her ancestor, on a journey of self-discovery.
