“Tripping the Light Fantastic,” is a screenplay for a full-length, feature film of entertaining fiction in the fantasy/romance genre which tells the story of Seek, who suffers severe head injuries while rescuing Maryanne from some toughs accosting her on a tube late one night. While in the hospital, Seek undergoes a Near-Death Experience from which astral travels ensue: taking him to Los Angeles in May of 1972 – where he relives some events from his wild hippie past and a failed love affair – to an English garden outside of time and space – where he pursues enlightenment as he meets two whimsically humorous and scathingly insightful spirit guides – and to London three days in the future – where he pursues new love with Maryanne.
