The Play Goes On - Zachary Cox, Jean Williams and Friends
London: Starfire Publishing, 2015. Large format paperback, 268 pages. New.
The Companion of the Rainbow Bridge was an experimental ritual drama group co-founded by the late Zach Cox and Jean Williams in 1977, which operated until 1994. The Play Goes On reveals the ethos and practices of this group, and makes available for the first time 23 of its beautiful ritual scripts. Apollonian in nature, the rituals emphasise precision of form, beauty of language, and elegance of movement. The accompanying essays offer a powerful glimpse into the inner workings of this influential group, and show how the ritual sequences reflect the ethos of the group and its member's approach to magical work. This book will interest all lovers of ritual drama, and offers much to those who would build their own ritual practice - particularly within the context of a group setting.
