Billy Moon has become trapped in the nine-to-five life of crowded subways and fluorescent offices. Unable to find a place in ordinary society, Billy packs his suitcase and runs away from home. He becomes lost in a strange land, alive with traveling musicians, railroad hobos, and mythological creatures. Pursued by the specter of a great black dog, Billy’s journeys finally leads him to the very edge of the world, where he must confront the demons of his own mind.
Inspired by the music and life’s work of Nick Drake, The Nick Drake Project is a dark adventure about the nightmares we all must face on the road to our dreams. It is about the black holes a person can fall into and the journey home. (Show Facebook Event)
