Gargoyles is a full-length play in which five people come together on the remote “Island of Unlimited Potential” where they will be subjected to a rigorous program of self-improvement by the resident self-help for success Guru, Marty Martinson. Each has his or her own reasons for attending, but all will find themselves connected by this mysterious place where collective dreaming is common and wish fulfillment is not just a dream.
