Down the Road Opens this Weekend!

Dreamwell is proud to present Down the Road by Lee Blessing, directed by Nate Sullivan. Performances will be held March 24, 25, 31 and April 1 at 7:30, at Public Space One (120 N. Dubuque St., in the basement of the Wesley Center). Pay What You Can night for Down the Road is Saturday, March 25th. Our goal is to make the performance accessible to anyone who wants to come. Online tickets can only be purchased at full price, so if you’re interested in taking advantage of Pay What You Can, make sure you come early to get your spot. The house will open at 7:00, with the performance starting at 7:30. Reglar ticket prices are $13 for adults, $10 for students and seniors, and can be purchased at http://www.dreamwell.com/view-tickets/ Synopsis: Down the Road centers on a convicted serial killer and the husband and wife writing team hired to help him write an account of his crimes.

Are they, in fact, helping to turn...

Antigone Opens February 10

Dreamwell is excited to present Antigone by Mac Wellman. Performances will be held Feb. 10, 11, 17, and 18, 7:30pm at Public Space One (located in the Wesley Center-120 N. Dubuque St., Iowa City). Tickets are $10 for students and seniors, $13 regular. On Saturday, Feb. 11 we will have Pay What You Can Night, where we encourage you to come see the show and pay what you are able. This is not a typical version of Antigone. Rather the three directors and their casts will create different short interpretations of Wellman’s text to be presented as one show. The story is the same – Antigone buries her dead brother who had lead a revolt against Thebes, which was considered a crime against the state – but the exploration of the story will be totally unique. The three directors are Matthew Brewbaker, Adeara Jean Maurice and Krista Neumann.
