look, mama! it’s a dream!

Le Petit Theatre

Play Reading Series

2021 – 2022


I woke up yesterday to the infectious smile of my newborn daughter and thought, “Now, how do I keep that smile on your face?” Of course, the telepathy between us is still very new so her muted response didn’t bother me much. I guess we have eighteen plus years to work on that, but the question still lingers. My mother says to charm her with the hopes of tomorrow and her mother says we’re plagued by evil deeds of the past. Is today just a fantasy in between the two? Still, I feel this overwhelming force to tell her absolutely everything.

‘look, mama! it’s a dream!’ is an explorative inquiry into the parallels between the spirit of our mothers and the dreams, or the lack of, they inspire in us. We will interpret this idea through four stage readings including Vietgone by Qui Nguyen, Fairview by Jackie Sibblies Drury, Pass Over by Antoinette Nwandu and The Mother by Florian Zeller. Each reading will be followed by a short, facilitated discussion featuring a special guest speaker.
