I Dream Too Much

Monday, March 16
7:00PM - 8:30PM

Topfer Theatre at ZACH
202 South Lamar Blvd


After college, Dora finds herself back home, prepping for the LSAT while her friends travel the globe. When her Great Aunt Vera injures herself, Dora volunteers to help and travels to Vera's snowy estate. The last thing the venerable Vera wants is a caretaker, and the last thing Dora wants is to be bored and isolated. Still, Dora fetches sweaters, studies for the LSAT, and trashes her own attempts at poetry. She spends more and more time with a colorful group of locals, until she uncovers Vera's hidden past, leading the two women to a much stronger bond. Much to their surprise, Vera helps Dora through her poetic "muddle," and Dora discovers her own unique voice while Vera rediscovers hers.
