Waking From The Dream
Write Act Repertory Theatre's Producing Artistic Director John Lant and Associate Artistic Director Ken Cosby are proud to announce WAKING FROM THE DREAM: Four Tales About Living in the Fantasy of Our Minds, produced by Rochelle Perry, Anne Mesa, and John Lant. This collection of one-act plays showcases up and coming Los Angeles playwright, Rochelle Perry.  This spotlight series has a limited 8-night engagement at the Write Act Repertory Theatre from Wednesday, June 8 through Wednesday June 22, 2011 with a special Sunday night show on June 19.  All shows start at 7:30pm and feature a different 15 min pre-show every performance.  

WAKING FROM THE DREAM is a collection of four tales that delve deep into the psyche of the human experience and explore the dark places that the mind can lead us. Begin the night walking through a dreamscape of artwork by animation industry professionals. All of the artwork sales go towards benefiting the Japan Relief efforts.  Then take your seats and be enlightened by a local entertainer. Each night will feature a different pre-show spectacle, ranging from a melting pot of performers including martial artists, musicians, and even a snake dancer!

Opening the series of plays is the quirky Velma and Manny, which features the title characters - one of whom is a stuffed doll - on a special date.  The next play, Failure to the Family, addresses the pressure Asian-Americans face from demanding parents.  It Just Happened reveals secrets from two women's pasts, and how demons they thought they destroyed end up haunting them forever.  We then conclude the night with Japan 1946 Meets California 2010, a play inspired by true events in the playwright's life  the struggle with dementia and the effect it has on a person's past, present, and future.

Whether you live out your childhood fantasies, contemplate suicide because you've let someone down, live in regret with past demons that haunt you, or struggle to remember your loved ones... rest at ease knowing that someday you will wake from this dream.
