The Box is an allegorical comedy inspired by the myths of Prometheus and Pandora. A childlike character, Epth, lands on a desolate beach holding a box said to contain the answers to every question. Embarking on a quest for survival and something like enlightenment, Epth must contend with a mischievous imp, an addle-brained zealot, a fearsome ferry driver, and a wise-cracking, shape-shifting beast. Encounters with these four magical and zany figures constantly redefine Epth's adventure, which parallels the significant developmental stages in life.
