Uncle Shelby's WunderPantry of Possibilities

Or, Whatever Happened to Sunderban Village? 

written by Ben Forster, Jonathan A. Goldberg and Dan Moyer

Once upon a time in American history, Sunderban Village was the greatest theme park in the world, if only in the mind of creator and noted Explorer Fairbanks Fairbanks. Then it burned to the ground. A group of researchers and theatre artists reconstruct what they believe to be the hidden truth behind the lies, bees and Bengal tigers that made up this lost fragment of Americana.
