Back to all events


Event Details

March 5, 2015 | 7:30 PM | Pollak Theatre

Free Event

Co-Directors Jilann Spitzmiller and Hank Rogerson

Still Dreaming follows a group of elderly entertainers living at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in New Jersey and a pair of young directors hired to stage an in-house performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. As the once-celebrated performers struggle with Alzheimer's, dementia, and physical disabilities, the play's themes of perception, reality and memory take on new relevance and poignancy.

There will be a post screening Q&A with the co-directors Jilann Spitzmiller and Hank Rogerson

On Screen/In Person is made possible by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Regional Touring Program.
