Playwright extraordinaire and erstwhile Ensemble collaborator Tommy Smith (White Hot, SEXTET) is having the West Coast premiere of his new play, Demon Dreams, at West of Lenin, Friday, the 19th of October. Produced by The Ethereal Mutt and directed by West of Lenin founder AJ Epstein, Demon Dreams is a fast-paced allegory about the good and evil that lurks in the heart of mankind that mixes traditional Japanese theatrical forms, with rhyme-spitting demons and immortals congregating in an ancient temple to tell stories about the former rulers of the earth- humanity.
With a killer ensemble cast and brilliant designers, Demon Dreams is a theatrical event not to be missed. With a preview on the 18th, a special Halloween show, and a run through the 10th of November, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch this fantastic new work by one of the hottest playwrights on the scene today. And, if you come to the opening night party, you might just get your photograph taken by yours truly- so come out in your best duds and celebrate life, art, good, evil, and the magic of theatre!
