On the Main Stage

2017-2018 Season

Dreamcatcher Season Ticket Icon

You’re six years old. Mom’s in the hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. In this intimate show done in the round, the protagonist engages the audience by asking them to read items from the list and, occasionally, to help him tell his story.

Due to the intimate and interactive nature of the show, only 50 seats will be sold for each performance.

Dorothy has two days to finish packing up the family home and move to a new condo, so she’s called in her adult children to help with the task. When several unexpected visitors show up as well, the job becomes even more complicated. What they don’t know is that in the course of their visit, she plans to reveal to them something that she’s kept hidden for decades. What she doesn’t know is that nearly everyone in the house has secrets of their own. Ultimately, the family will discover the cost of hiding the truth and the cost of telling it. Together they’ll decide what stays with them and what will be left behind.
