About This Show

John Patrick Shanley’s the dreamer examines his pillow examines one couple’s attempt to find their way through the maze of love, lust, and art. Through three scenes, we follow Tommy and Donna, passionate on-again/off-again lovers. When Donna turns to her emotionally distant father for advice, a charged conversation leads him to insist that he talk to Tommy . . . to get him to marry her, or beat him up . . . leading to a tenuous detente.
