The man we know as the Buddha lived in Northern India around 500BC and introduced the teaching known as Buddhism. Approximately 300 years after his death, an extensive oral history of the movement was written down, carried and copied throughout Asia, and this canon is became the taproot of the entire Buddhist tradition...Framed in a most unusual and personal context, Buddha -- Triumph & Tragedy brings to the stage these authentic texts to enact the extraordinary life of the man, start to finish.
The Buddha considered his own life a model for all our struggles saying, "He who knows me, knows the Dharma."
It's no dry tale -- the Buddha's life stands among the great archetypal adventure stories. Brenner workshopped the play for two years before premiering it at Boston Center for the Arts in 2009. "Enchanting, poignant, revealing, compelling -- I loved it!” raved Boston Globe critic Terry Byrne. The Boston Herald wrote, “Riveting! Brenner is a subtle and masterful storyteller.” Agreed Boston Metro, “Wonderfully entertaining...marvelous to experience.” Following the Boston production, Brenner has toured with Buddha to performing arts venues around North America including New York, Pittsburgh and Denver.
