GREAT AMERICAN DREAMERS
Sunday, June 23 3pm

GREAT AMERICAN DREAMERS consists of two plays, LULU’S CHARMS IN THE DARK and RIVERVIEW RITZ. Set decades apart in the same employee boarding house located in the once grand Riverview Amusement Park, the roommates are thrown together in sparse living quarters. While the poverty and very real chaos that exists outside of Parks gates is seldom forgotten, each character strives toward the promise of the illusive high life. Their struggles to achieve ease and riches varies, yet all are imbued with a sense of hope. They are the great American Dreamers.
