Playshop Theatre: “A Dream Play”

Apr 23

Time: April 23 - 26
Venue: Gladys Mullenix Black Theatre

Agnes is dreaming: trapped in a whimsical world of illogic, lovelessness, loss and terror, she alone must bear humanity’s unhappiness. Should she keep sleeping and re-live the nightmare? Or wake to face the real world that produced it? With her signature wit and incisive relevance, Caryl Churchill re-imagines August Strindberg’s 1901 surrealist experiment as a modern meditation on living with conscience in a suffering world. Katie McGerr directs. Ticket information can be found on the Playshop Theatre website.
