OCEAN IN A TEACUP
A NEW MUSICAL DRAMA BASED ON A TRUE STORY
Into the most divided country in human history, India in 1946, comes a disillusioned American idealist. Ray Hauserman was a conscientious objector during World War 2. He became a Red Cross medic so he could be saving lives, not taking them. But in the horrific jungle war in Burma, he betrayed that vow. When the war ends, Ray can’t bring himself to return home to the woman he loves, waiting anxiously in Ohio. Living from drink to drink in the dive bars of Calcutta, he meets an Indian doctor and spiritual teacher. Doctor Thakur tries to inspire a reawakening of the compassionate heart within Ray. He invites him to become part of his humanitarian work of caring for the sick and hungry during the Moslem/Hindu riots that quickened the partition of India. To follow Doctor Thakur’s path of selfless service, Ray will have to leave his world behind. When his fiancé Julia arrives in India to try to bring him home, they are both challenged to learn great lessons of love and sacrifice.
