Description By Jean-Claude Van Itallie and the Open Theatre. "How can I live at all, knowing I am going to die? How can I attach myself to anything precious if I know it's going to perish? Yet 'The Serpent' is the celebration of man's mortality and his potential to live his life. 'Shall' I risk losing all these?"
