This is a play about the future (and climate change. Not insomnia).
A woman walks on to the stage. She says she is from the future. She says that we have stopped dreaming. She says we can change everything.
She says that she can help end all our dystopian nightmares.
But we know plays don’t change the world. Right?
This is the UK premiere of Land Without Dreams, a hopeful, funny and courageous new show by experimental Copenhagen-based theatre company Fix&Foxy. Their previous works include radical versions of Pretty Woman, Twin Peaks, and Friends.
