WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Martin M. Maguire's The Long March tells the saga of an oppressed people who, because of their differences from the prevailing temperament of their so-called hosts, are forced to continuously uproot and flee into exile. The central story follows the sorrowful, strange, and redemptive adventures of two sisters who are fathered by different men and promised in marriage to sworn rivals (one of whom belongs to the dominant tribe of the land). With echoes of the plight of the Jews leaving Egypt, of homeless Palestinians, of the Choctaw Indians in America, as well as the Irish Catholics, the play traces the genesis of intolerance to the furthest reaches of the soul.
