Irrational Dreams - a Comedy Soap Opera
Lulu.com, 2006 - 158 pages
Irrational Dreams is one of the few comedic soap operas available in print. This play, concerning the movie industry in Los Angeles, was produced in an off-off-Broadway workshop by the Rising Sun Performance Company in New York City in 2004. The play's thirty-three scenes use the plot devices of the 'traditional' soap - blackmail, adultery, turbulent careers, budding romance, etc. - only with a satirical-humorous tone, as opposed to the melodrama of the TV soap opera. Note that this is a reading edition of Irrational Dreams - a theatrical version (for professional use) is also available on lulu.com (# 183850).
