Drawn from Mr. Terkel's bestselling book American Dreams: Lost and Found, this absorbing and genuinely affecting theatre piece creates an overview of the American experience in our time through the voices of the people. A seamless mosaic of monologues spoken by young and old, rich and poor, the hopeful and the cynical, the play was first presented with great success by Chicago's famed Victory Gardens Theater, and has since become a favorite among the nation's leading regional theatres. "Peter Frisch has sifted through that gold in Terkel's book A,erocam Dreams: Lost and Found and picked out the best nuggets…The result is a simple play that is deeply moving." —Chicago Daily Herald. "…it is vibrant, gripping drama, almost a song of soliloquies…AMERICAN DREAMS transmits pride, zest, guts, drive, belief and frustration, qualities that wave to us like our American flag." —Leader Newspapers. "AMERICAN DREAMS is a rich theatrical tapestry…" —Chicago Sun-Times. "…a clever and bittersweet odyssey through the American imagination, which leaves one feeling surprisingly hopeful about the state of our national faith." —Berkshire Eagle.
