The Thread of Ariadne
This play takes place in the remains of a church in Piste, a deserted Mayan village near the ancient city of Chichen Itza, the Yucatan Peninsula. The Le Plongeons have set up camp in a room of the church. The time is December, 1875, during the War of the Castes. Augustus has recently discovered the statue of the "great one," which he calls Chaacmol; he has also found evidence for the destruction of Mu or Atlantis, carved above the doorway in the building called Akab–dzib, meaning dark or terrible writing....
Plague of Locusts
The set for this play is the living room of the Le Plongeon’s home in Brooklyn, New York; the time is 1895. Far from the hopes and challenges of their beloved Mayach, the Le Plongeons are at battle with museum officials and the conservative "authorized Americanists" of certain universities, who are either ignoring or condemning their work. The academic archaeologists are at odds with Augustus’s sweeping views of the Land of Mayach as the motherland of all ancient civilizations, including Atlantis, as well as with his esoteric archaeological interpretations.
A Dream of Atlantis
This play also takes place in the living room of the Brooklyn home. The year is 1910 and Alice has been a widow for a little over a year. Her friend, Maude, has planned a "fiesta" to cheer her on the eve of her departure for London, where Alice, unwell, plans to visit her family and draw up her will. Maude has invited two young friends from the Explorer’s Club to recite passages of verse from Alice’s own A Dream of Atlantis.
