This biographical portrait of T. E. Lawrence (a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia) begins in 1922, when Lawrence was hiding under an assumed name as “Aircraftman Ross” in the Royal Air Force, and is being disciplined by his Flight Lieutenant for alleged misconduct. When Lawrence’s identity is compromised, his dreams take him back to the various figures in his life, as the play flashes back to the famed Arab Revolts, beginning during World War I in mid-1916.
