Book Description:
The Dream is Joanna Baillie’s gothic, proto-Lynchian meditation on fear, guilt, and the prophetic power of dreams. In the cloistered confines of a Swiss monastery, a small group of monks share the same prophetic dream: a forlorn specter reaches out to them with a mysterious—and potentially life-threatening—ultimatum. The dream comes every night, and yet its true import remains hazy and unknown. But when these dreams lead them to a buried corpse, the monastery soon tumbles down a blood-spattered path of vengeance, betrayal, and unbridled terror. - Summary by ChuckW Stage Directions: Sandra SchmitJerome: GauguinBenedict: ToddHWPaul: TJ BurnsOsterloo: Tomas PeterPrior: Larry WilsonLeonora: SoniaAgnes: AvailleMorand: Chuck WilliamsonWovelreid: Voxandis3rd Peasant / 1st Woman / Sexton / The Imperial Ambassador: Leanne YauPeasant / Lay-Brother / The First Gentleman: DrPGould4th Peasant / 2nd Executioner: April60901st Peasant / 1st Servant / 1st Executioner: Foon2nd Peasant / 2nd Servant / 1st Monk: TriciaGMonk: Jim Locke1st Soldier: Roger Melin1st Officer: Eva Davis2nd Soldier: alanmapstone3rd Soldier: Nemo
