A PLAY ABOUT DREW CAREY|
A PLAY ABOUT DREW CAREY is a new play by Philip Santos Schaffer that uses television star and iconic pasty-man Drew Carey as a jumping off point for discussing popular culture, the power of laughter, and the playwright’s mother. Join Ryan, Colin, Wayne, and Drew for an evening of improv, music, and self-aware meta-theatre. Even I’m a character in the play! Shit. I mean, um, the playwright is a character in the play. And boy is he talented.

“Thou shouldst not have been old till though hadst been wise.”
After another amazing season, with amazing work onstage, with amazing audiences, who were in turn….amazed in 2015, What Dreams May Co in partnership with Queens Shakespeare Inc. again turns the microscope onto two of literature’s most famous characters, who on the surface appear to be complete opposites. One a certain boy who will never grow up, the other one of Shakespeare’s kings who has grown quite old. Yet they both seem to suffer a clear case of “Peter Pan Syndrome”; flying about from place to place, and oblivious to the destruction they leave in their wake. Following up our successful run of The Terrible Tragedy of Peter Pan, What Dreams May Co is pleased to present William Shakespeare’s King Lear.
