Theatre Works Presents

The Dream Room

By Rachel Naparstek

19 - 20 October

Rachel’s The Dream Room is a semi-autobiographical musical featuring original music and lyrics. The performances on the 19th and 20th November will be staged readings of Rachel's show.

Inspired by the isolation that Rach felt during the extended covid lockdowns, Rachel wrote this musical to explain how she felt to the outside world when her daily joys were extinguished. Rachel dreams and interacts with multiple characters including The Queen, Patrick Swayze and Freddie Mercury. Each character inspires her to fight back against the dreaded Coronavirus (a villain who torments her within her room). The Dream Room features epic dream sequences (including an escape to Hollywood) and ultimately encourages us to follow our dreams.

There has been a change in how The Dream Room will be performed next week. After much discussion, the team of The Dream Room, have decided to present their piece as a Staged Reading rather than a formal performance. We want to present Rachel’s beautiful script in a way that supports, and best represents where the current status of her work is. A Staged Reading means that our performers will still perform their parts, the songs will be sung but there will be no formal blocking of the piece.

We hope you understand the change, and can’t wait to have you here with us!
