A new play by Obsidian’s former Playwright in Residence Motion, Nightmare Dream is an intimate, site specific theatre production that moves through space, time and cultural history exploring the African encounter with the ‘other’. The journey of Simon Dube, an African immigrant haunted by his disconnection to his traditional culture is an evolution of the African self that ebbs into high dreams and terrifying nightmares.
