    Longing For A Place

    Longing For A Place

    LISTEN: Have You Longed For a Place You've Never Been?
    In this episode, this simple question becomes a SEARCH for opportunity, meaning, safety and life.
    We begin in a fairytale place...a place many children dream about. But then, each of us has that wish - don't we?
    And then, we move into the DESERT and discover the remains of dreams...
    Join us on this next journey.

    We are exploring ideas of longing. So, EOD is releasing raw interview clips done with some of the people that will be featured in our upcoming documentary episode.

    Greg Wohead is an American playwright living in Britain. His play 'Celebration, Florida' is about a real town located next to Disney World. It was created as a concept of a model town and still exists today with people living there. At the same time, it is a simulation of the perfect town.

    Wohead talks about his personal motivation for writing the play.
