“What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
WHAT THE CRITICS SAID
Written by Sally McLean, Chasing Pegasus: a play in ten chords explores the universal theme of the desire to follow our dreams. It is a celebration of what makes us different, and through that discovery, a recognition of what makes us ultimately the same.
Chasing Pegasus focuses not on accepting our place in the world, but rather on the continuing quest of humankind to become more than the sum of our parts.
