The American Dream & The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden
Directed by Kyle Hester

THE AMERICAN DREAM by Edward Albee

Mommy and Daddy are waiting impatiently for someone, but theyre a bit vague on just who exactly that someone might be and why theyre coming.  Mrs. Barker, who runs the Bye-Bye Adoption Service, doesnt quite seem to understand why shes there either.  Only Grandma knows, but shes not telling.  When a mysterious and handsome young man comes on the scene, the familys gruesome and violent past is uncovered, and the true fallout of the American Dream is revealed in all its grotesque and terrifying absurdity.


THE HAPPY JOURNEY TO TRENTON AND CAMDEN by Thornton Wilder

Meet the Kirbys: Ma, Pa, and their two children, Arthur and Caroline.  They take a road trip from their home in Newark down to Camden to visit their eldest daughter, Beulah, who has recently suffered a miscarriage.  They wave goodbye to their neighbors, they watch a funeral procession, they pick flowers, they stop for hot dogs; nothing happens, everything happens.  


Presented together, these two one-act plays portray starkly contrasting snapshots of American life: its generosity and its cruelty, its simplicity and its heartlessness, its sanctity and its madness.
