Abstract:

The mysterious Dr. Görtler believes that a future dimension of time can be entered in dreams, and is drawn to a Yorkshire hostelry in search of proof. He had dreamed of an unhappy couple coming to this inn, the wife meeting a lover, and the discovery driving her husband to suicide. On arrival in Yorkshire, to his horror, Dr. Görtler sees the dream in danger of becoming a reality... [The play is] based upon an idea propounded by the mystic P.D. Ouspensky, that the individual soul achieves progress or suffers degeneration not through living a succession of lives, but through living the same life a number of times over -- a sort of Groundhog Cosmology. --www.bbc.co.uk & www.cix.co.uk.
