Dream Boston and the Huntington Theatre asked local playwrights to imagine their favorite locations, landmarks, and friends in a future Boston, when we can once again meet and thrive in our city.
These micro-plays take place at locations such as North Bridge on Patriot’s Day; the MIT Great Dome on the 4th of July while the sounds of the “1812 Overture” float in the background; at the Boston Public Library, where a librarian and library patron debate the ethics of reserving a book; and a not-so-perfect first date on the edge of the Boston Common.

A new play will be released each Thursday. Upcoming audio plays from playwrights Kirsten Greenidge and Brenda Withers are waiting in the wings. Click this link to learn more
