When Brook's vacation cruise ship goes down in high seas, she awakens in a strange land inhabited by people so obsessed with rushing and working and earning that they've forgotten the reason for their frantic pace. Under the tutelage of the Stranger, the one person who refuses to join the race, Brook finally escapes. This Seuss-esque, rhyming large-cast one-act satirizes the American drive for the almighty More -- more speed, more money, more possessions, more prestige -- and challenges us to examine how we live our lives.
