That moment when alien cultures meet for the first time – the potential for conflict, the strange dangers and diseases, the transfer of knowledge and technology.
A seventeenth century sailor is stranded on a foreign shore. His deepest desire is to get a message back to his family explaining what has happened to him.
This is an account of coping with exile – of being away from your loved ones. Of overcoming the loneliness, despair and dread of being totally forgotten.
WILLEM VAN DE VELDEN: a Dutch sailor of the early 17th Century. Religious. Married with a daughter. He is thin but could be any age over 20. (A Dutch accent would be useful but not essential.)
