Time Again in Oz is a spellbinding voyage to the magical world created by L. Frank Baum. From its dramatic shipwreck beginning, to Dorothy and her aging invalid Uncle Henry’s encounters with Ozma of Oz, Roquat the Gnome King, an army on roller skates and a time twisting Tic-Toc man, this fantastic adventure explores our relationship to time and each other.
