As Edgar Oliver wanders through Prospect Park he guides his audience to hidden landscapes few have seen but he also reveals his innermost longings and regrets. In this most personal of Edgar’s monologues, he maps his deepest memories of childhood and experience. IN THE PARK is a journey of loss and hope, joy and sadness, along tangled paths to the fascinating place that is Edgar’s heart.
