AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Timeshare / plots your comedic escape to a ramshackle resort that time forgot.

'Straddling the International Date Line, Paradise was once a history-themed retreat providing the ultimate in glory-day getaways. Unfortunately, the years have been unkind. Today, it’s a dilapidated tourist trap filled with vagabonds and oddballs; a place where swindling stranded cruise passengers is the only way to make a living.

'Cast off and crack up with a musical fable from award-winning writer Lally Katz and the Debate Society’s Oliver Butler (NY). With one foot in the present and the other in the past, join this hilarious human search / for a fleeting slice of paradise.' (Publication summary)
