A Coterie World Premiere
A co-production with UMKC Theatre

A hero’s journey filled with magic and wonderment, the story begins as 13-year-old Jack McCall learns some very bad news about his health. As the seriousness of the news sets in, reality begins blending with fantasy and Jack is drawn back to the magical park and imaginary friends of his childhood. He soon finds himself, along with an elf, an owl, a troll, and a ghost, on an adventure to save the park from an evil imprisoned in a massive tree. But when Jack begins to question whether the adventure is real or imagined, he quickly learns how facing this adversary may be the key to facing his illness.

Based on the short story “Imaginary Friends” written by best selling author Terry Brooks,  one of the most celebrated fantasy authors in the country. He is known for his works The Shannara Chronicles, Magic Kingdom of Landover, and the film adaptation of Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Terry is brother to The Coterie’s resident playwright, Laurie Brooks, who has adapted this world premiere for our stage.
