Mary Celeste and the Beast of the Bowery. A new play by John Knowles.

1847: adrift on the high seas, a rowing boat, containing three exhausted figures, a priest, a cabin boy and a woman (bound in chains). A full moon beckons as they drift, unaware, towards the island of Los Lobos, 'The island of wolves'...
