What the Buddha Never Taught

2,500 years in the making, Dr. Martin T. Adam’s What the Buddha Never Taught is a rock ‘n rollicking comedy for our times, addressing karma and western materialism, alienation and enlightenment. As we all search for our own path in a deeply troubled world, one way to find it might be to sing and dance our way there!

Desperately seeking enlightenment, Vancouverite Tim arrives at an international monastery deep in the jungle – but things soon become trickier than expected. Bitten by a spider (which he must not kill!), provoked by a cynical American, harangued by a European rule-stickler, confronted with a possible murder, and always tempted by his urges, Tim soon discovers that the path to spirituality is actually a labyrinth!

Based on the book by Tim Ward, What the Buddha Never Taught is directed by Chris Humphreys with musical direction by Scott White. This unique rock opera brings Buddhist philosophy and the quest for enlightenment to the stage for the first time, right here in Vancouver at the Jericho Arts Centre.
