Synopsis

She explored Tibet, fought with Garibaldi, rode across India on the back of an elephant, was friends with Thomas Edison - a terror to the establishment, and a nightmare to the British Raj. Russian-born spiritualist and philosopher Helena Blavatsky lived everywhere from London to India to Hell's Kitchen - and was (and remains) one of the most controversial figures in world religion. With her colleague, Henry Steele Olcott, she created Theosophy - the science of religion, The Secret Doctrine - Christ without the Church. Her ideas are still as timely and thought provoking as then. He life was lived on a colossal scale, and now Sallie Bingham's Off-Broadway play brings this extraordinary woman, and her story to the stage.
