New York City
A moving mosaic of what it means to be endowed with “Great Expectations,” That Poor Dream is set on a train traveling from New York City to Fairfield, CT, uniting worlds divided by geography, privilege, and time. Inspired by Charles Dickens’s classic novel about coming of age in a profoundly class-conscious society, the work draws on the company’s own complex relationship to class identity and economic disparity in American society, The Assembly’s newest creation explores how class defines and divides us, and how our shared humanity might bring us closer together.
