Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came

Written by Steve Schroer

Directed by Philip D. Henry


Accompanied by an implacable Seer, Childe Roland (so called because he is not yet a knight) enters the mystical, blighted land of the Elf King to save his sister, lost to that realm by ancient and impossible rules. Along the way he crosses paths with the residents of that place, and each encounter pulls him closer to his dark destiny and and the fateful climax against the wicked elf king.


Written by Steve Schroer of Hardcover Theater and based on the same material as Stephen King's Dark Tower series, Childe Rowlande to the Dark Tower Came is an exploration of the classic poem by Robert Browning illustrating one man's struggle with true morality.
