Synopsis

This fanciful and poignant play explores the power of dreams and the magical creatures that create them. An eager new dream-giver known only as Littlest One struggles to heal the hearts of an abused young boy, his grieving caregiver and his estranged mother before the haunting memories each of them carries become more than they can bear. But are the dreams Littlest One weaves strong enough to fortify and protect the fragile humans in her care? Commissioned by Oregon Children's Theatre and First Stage Children's Theater.

Media Reviews

"Gossamer is a wonderfully imaginative play … The task is for the newest dream-giver, aptly called Littlest One, to build up the broken-down ego of a boy, John, suffering emotional fallout from an abusive father, all while battling the nightmare-inducing Sinisteeds." -Chicago Critic

"A startlingly beautiful—and faithful—adaptation that promises to evoke smiles, provoke a few tears and inspire audiences to think about bravery, confidence, family and love." -CenterStageChicago.com

"Takes audiences into an imaginary world filled with depth, color and charm." -Montgomery Media
