Mysterious Easter Island is about as far away from civilization as possible. Thousands of miles of the Pacific Ocean have helped keep the secrets of the huge statues from the world. Why they were built and what happened to the people is an enigma that has obsessed people since the island was discovered. “Mana” the new play by Ray Saracen explores the haunting, often terrifying experiences of the first archaeologists on the island.
Based on the true events of Katherine and Scoresby Routledge’s "Mana" expedition to Easter Island in 1914, the play tears apart the thin façade of British nobility as the proper British researchers come face to face with the bloody reality of life on the island. Even darker secrets are buried in the island’s history, and their own past.
Haunted by ghosts of her own ancestors and the spirits of the island, Katherine struggles to solve the mysteries of the giant statues before war engulfs the island and the world.
Iron Age is proud to present this world premier by Ray Saraceni, the author of last year’s huge hit show about the early days of football "Maroons, The Anthracite Gridiron."
