Dreams of Home by Migdalia Cruz dives deep into the bleak and ever-challenging world of the New York City homeless. Pedro, a Latino former-playboy down on his luck, and Sandra, a ruined beauty-turned-tramp slowly succumbing to illness, tentatively explore an unexpected romance, on the 6-train subway platform at 103rd and Lexington. Over the course of one 24-hour period, the desperate pair revisits their hardscrabble pasts through ominous dreamscapes, with the Angel of Death acting as Tour Guide. A Latino Chicago Theatre co-production.
