Johnson Over Jordan archiveDescribed by Priestley as an "adventure of the theatre", Johnson Over Jordan is a journey through the past and present life of Robert Johnson, recently deceased. In order to reach the Inn at the End of the World and begin his final voyage, Robert must first negotiate not only the bureaucracy of the Central Offices of Universal Assurance and Global Loan and Finance Corporation but also the bright lights, strong drink and beautiful girls at the Jungle Hot Spot night club. Johnson Over Jordan is an ambitious, dreamlike piece of theatre and, ultimately, a deeply moving account of a very ordinary man's life.
