The disappearance of ancient dinosaur footprints in the Australian outback triggers a series of mysterious events bringing together a forgotten movie star, an Aboriginal elder and a grieving father on an epic journey of transformation. From the vast Australian desert to subway tunnels beneath Hollywood Boulevard, Dreamtime meets the Dream Factory when worlds collide in this play that ponders the depth of human loss, the fragile bonds between parents and children, and the possibility of redemption.
“A multistrata play about time and loss, relics and dreams, memory and legacy. Dinosaur layers personal myths from three distinct families to create a smart, lyrical, and moving show.”
