THE STORY: POSSUM DREAMS is a seriously funny play about a married couple caught in the unraveling illusions that have held them together for eighteen years. The play opens with Walter coming home from teaching, distressed because a transsexual student has been flirting with him. It’s a revelation that leads to an intense yet often hysterical battle that reveals the chaos under the surface of the carefully ordered lives of Walter and his wife Jan.
"Possum Dreams feels like a kinky, unhinged cousin to "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "God of Carnage." It's a play with simiilar DNA but willing to go further, break more windows, get into more trouble, than its older relations. In doing so, it's more absurd but somehow, more exhilarating..." ~The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
"Emotionally overwhelming..." ~Akron Beacon Journal.
"Outrageous - and hysterically funny -" ~Knight Arts
"Andrew Narten and Leighann Niles DeLorenzo are superb... They rant, harass and taunt with glee... They each present several powerful and hysterical monologues which are worth the price of admission..." ~Broadway World
