Tibet Does Not Exist

by Don Thompson

directed by Pamela Butler

The play is about everything from politics to religion to the environment to love to movies. The action takes place in the fictional town of Winston, Connecticut, near Yale University. A Tibetan Buddhist monk, Buton Rinpoche, visits with several college professors -- but the action particularly focuses on Rinpoche's relationship with a professor of economics, Thomas Walsh. Rinpoche engages Walsh in a series of often humorous conversations about everything under the sun, and tries to convince the cynical Walsh that compassion, wisdom, and tolerance are critical qualities in today's society -- qualities, in fact, that can ensure the survival of mankind.
