“What happens after you get what you want? Or what you think you wanted? When the better part of you has long departed, what happens after you get what you want?”
18 and restless, Mallory leaves college a week before finals to embark on a serendipitous journey up the coast. A modern take on the chase to see the magical, all powerful Wizard, and an unexpected journey to find home, Dreams of 18 examines growing up and leaving home for the first time. What is home, after you’ve left? Your bed, your furniture, your posters, they’ll all still be there after you’ve gone. Does it still feel like home?
Dreams of 18 has received the UC Berkeley Music Theater Award for Fall 2016, and will make its premiere at PianoFight this December.
