Dreama’s struggles as a mother and Occupyer reveal the life of an unusual activist and the inner workings of a tent city.  With a major protest looming and troubles in the encampment, Dreama must decide where her allegiances lie.


“[F]or any Fringegoer who wants a look at what it was really like in those few months when D.C. was Occupied, McPherson Madness comes to us straight from the inside….The play offers a series of slice-of-life vignettes, interspersed with protest chants, building toward Dreama’s eventual decision and its emotional fallout….Observant, theatrical, and somehow casual”  – Brett Abelman, Washington City Paper

” The full political and social influences of the Occupy movement of 2011-12 might have yet to completely emerge, but its cultural effect continues to march forward….Life was so different in Occupy outposts that it’s worth examining all its unusual aspects.”  – Roger Catlin, The Washington Post

“The ensemble, as stated, was very strong, and even the most minor characters had their own bits of business. As I grew to feel like I knew these characters—that these were real people I’d met on metro before–the more I wanted Dreama to stay. I think it was because what I saw on stage was so full of life, and what was beyond the playing area felt so abstract.”  – Maddie Gaw, DC Metro Theater Arts
