Lonely and imaginative Olive Bean Hester isn't like the other girls at school: She prefers nightmares to happy, peaceful dreams. But on her 16th birthday, a secret wish brings her nightmares to life and she is whisked away to the underground world of the Dreamchild Neverists. She discovers a grim and fantastic world, populated by others like her, that's at risk of being torn apart -- a world that only she might be able to save. Olive and the Mouse Spider King is written and directed by Jeremy Menekseoglu and features sets, props and puppets built by the whole cast. This twisted tale is coming to the stage at Dream Laboratory in Chicago.
