‘In dreams begin responsibilities, and for Delmore, an exceptional day out’
It’s Delmore’s 21st birthday in the harshest winter of the Great Depression. There is no cake on the table. That night his dreams treat him to a magical adventure where he is forced to face his past under the dizzying bright lights of Coney Island’s iconic Luna Park.
Join him on this fateful date.
Luna Park is a coming of age reverie presented in the style of magical realism through physical theatre. An inventive, visually captivating elegiac look at the American past and the immigrant experience of the 1930s. Funny and sizzling with energy.
This performance brings to life a forgotten play, written by PULITZER PRIZE WINNING writer Donald Margulies.
