My Nightmares Wear WhiteTalk Like You Theatre
This is a play about waiting rooms, needles, and walking in slanted lines. This is a play about waking up and never sleeping. This is a play about breathing slowly to stay alive. This is not a play about the beginning or the end. This is a play about the middle. A medical diary brought to life. Based on the writer’s real-life experiences with an illness that consumed her youth. This play will take the audience down the rabbit hole and into the world of dreams, memories, suffering, and absurdity.
“…a deeply personal and emotional show… a memorable performance from Grace Thompson really elevate this production to being something special. …My Nightmares Wear White will stick with me for a while.” – Mooney on Theatre
