Life is But a Dream takes place in a whimsical two-story house on Governor's Island that we have transformed into a childlike dream. There is a room sized blanket fort, a room where painting on the walls is encouraged, a star-filled room, and much more! In each room, you will encounter a memory, and be brought into a poignant moment from a childhood experience. Different performers will be in each room to tell the story or memory that corresponds with the environment they're in. It's fun for all ages.
