Life moves pretty fast! If you’re not careful, you could miss something!
Sleepwalk's opening weekend, was attended and enjoyed by audiences ranging in age from 12 to 80, and received overwhelming praise!
In this multi-media production, the dialogue is fast paced, humorous, and heart touching as Dillon, a teenage boy, deals with the traumas of his life, including the divorce of his parents and the suicide death of his rock star idol. Dillon goes into a dream which is a sleepwalk through dialogues with the deceased Rock Star, his girlfriend May Flowers, and the various personifications of his own brain, both the good and bad. During his sleepwalk encounters, Dillon learns to control his impulses and reaches a better understanding of himself.
Sleepwalk is performed by a young cast, who deal with the serious and difficult topic of teenage depression and suicide presented in a way that makes the play both enjoyable and humorous. Even though William Mastrosimone wrote the play to combat teenage suicide and depression, the word “suicide” is never used and the play is not depressing. Mastrosimone manages to put forth in an entertaining manner, the message that help is available and that the impulses can be overcome.
The play runs 1 hour. There is a question and answer discussion with the cast and director following each performance. This is your chance to question the cast about their roles and their feelings about the characters they portrayed.
