What better way to face the absurdity of our own reality than to plunge ourselves into a waking dream? In this site-specific, immersive version of Strindberg’s classic Dream Play, audience members mingle with actors as they weave together a performance encompassing music, dance, and text. Together, they tell the story of Agnes, mischievous daughter of the God Indra, as she journeys to Earth in her quest to understand the human experience in all its messy, wild, joyful glory.

Tickets are $5 for students and seniors, $15 general admission. Theater tickets are available at the Fine Arts Center box office, by calling 1-800-999-UMAS or by visiting the box office online.
