Open: 12/01/16- Close: 12/16/16 CLOVER: A NEW EXPERIMENTAL DRAMA WRITTEN BY ERIK EHN
A new experimental theater drama about America’s history of violence by Erik Ehn, directed by Glory Kadigan with original music by Maya Solovéy and original puppet design & puppetry direction by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew.

A killer walks in a circle, finds a killer, circles the killed. Experimental writer Erik Ehn’s latest play about the violent and universal cycle of life follows the tragedy of Emmett Till and his mother that helped spur the Civil Rights Movement as well as three other stories, illustrating America’s history of violence towards those most vulnerable. Society cannot hide from any of this, from losing, moving, seeing, longing.

Open: 12/08/16- Close: 12/17/16 KING LEAR
“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.
