Sweeter Dreams is a new play by Duncan Pflaster. It's about Luisa Lambert, an independent filmmaker, and the two men she's in love with: Brad, the handsome young actor who appears shirtless in all her movies, and Thomas, her solid and well-meaning husband. Meanwhile, TV Film Critic Roberta LeFay seems to have it in for Luisa's new circus movie Ricky the Geek, which stars Brad, who is set to be a breakout movie star with a new role in a Spielberg film.
The stage play will feature filmed clips from Luisa's movies, Roberta's TV show and more.
Sweeter Dreams will have 8 performances in the 2011 Planet Connections Theatre Festivity at the Gene Frankel Theater this June.
Money raised from Kickstarter will go toward rehearsal space, costumes, set (especially a film screen to project movies onto), and paying the performers and tech folk.
