Department of Dreams
What You'll Get
City Garage is pleased to present world premiere of Kosovar playwright Jeton Neziraj’s Department of Dreams. In this nightmarish, Orwellian comedy an autocratic government demands its citizens deposit their dreams in a central, bureaucratic depository 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 stubbornly to survive in this strange dream world but finds nothing is as it seems to be except the authority that rules it. Don’t miss the world premiere of this new play from one of Europe’s most remarkable playwrights.

“The cast entire does the fine job I frankly have come to expect from City Garage, with Frederique Michel’s direction showing wonderful insight, most of all in terms of casting, while an extra nod should go to Gaston Vinas’ graphic animations .” — Night Tinted GlassesThe tickets identified in this promotion are made available through Goldstar.
