Department of Dreams
About Department of Dreams
The world premiere of Kosovar playwright Jeton Neziraj, "Department of Dreams" is a nightmarish, Orwellian comedy of an autocratic government that demands its citizens deposit their dreams in a central, bureaucratic facility so that it can exert the fullest possible control of their imaginations. In this vast, underground complex, civil servants like Dan, a new hire for the prized job of Interpreter, sift patiently through the nation’s dreams looking for threats to the government’s authority. If order is to be maintained, deviance must be extinguished and imagination co-opted. Dan works hard and tries to survive in this strange dream world but finds nothing is as it seems to be except the authority that rules it.
Recommended for ages 13 and up.
