Come to Port Promise, California, a late-Victorian outpost where mysteries are part of the fabric of life and an old-fashioned tonic might do a body good. When a traveling Snake-Oil Seller comes to town with an Elixir full of promises, each of the Port Promise townsfolk come face to face with the prospect of a miraculous second chance. Performed outdoors on Autumn evenings near dusk when the separation between the physical world and the spiritual world is said to be at its most delicate—Elixir of Life elicits laughter, contemplation, and a sense that anything is possible. Elixir of Life will be performed outdoors on FluxWagon, the mobile stage. Audience members of all ages are welcome, but Elixir of Life is best enjoyed by ages 9 and up. This event is free to attend.
