A THEATRE NEAR U Presents Children of an Idle Brain
Once again, A Theatre Near U, brings another astonishingly original and cutting-edge play to the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, Second Stage — Children of an Idle Brain. Orphaned sisters respond to the stark, bleak reality of their lives in wholly opposite ways, one sleeps for days on end dreaming of happy liaisons and reunions, while the other struggles to keep a leaking roof over their heads, simply dreaming of attending college. Interlaced with powerful doses of comedy and tragedy, Children of an Idle Brain, explores the human capacity to deeply fantasize, to despair, to yearn. This stunning play grabs you by the collar, drags you into the eye of the storm and leaves you at its shocking conclusion asking urgently, “Is it true? Life is but a dream?” It's a show you won't want to miss!
