Richard Abrons’ THREE TRAVELERS dispenses life lessons in between the laughter. Amidst a glorious set of ancient Indian ruins by Don Llewellyn, three world-weary tourists besiege a cheeky guru to teach them the meaning of life before their driver returns in an hour.

Married couple Mavis (Judith Lightfoot Clarke) and Travis (Stephen Schnetzer) have accompanied their friend Lydia (Kathleen McNenny) on this trek in hopes to carve new paths into lives that have become lost and overgrown with unrewarding endeavors. A delightfully sassy guru (scene-stealer Kenneth Maharaj) guides this spiritual journey, easily blending the old with the new. Cell phones and namastes, tangos and mantras, singing and meditations – whatever it takes to advance the unsuspecting travelers towards the truth. Cleverly written and skillfully executed with deft direction by Jay Broad, THREE TRAVELERS is a witty, tongue-in-cheek bow to today’s self help frenzy which actually manages to give occasional pauses for thought. A pleasure to watch from beginning to end.
