Little Children Dream of God

January 24, 2015—April 19, 2015

Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre Black Box Theatre

In its eighth season, Roundabout Underground presents the world premiere of Little Children Dream of God, a new play by emerging playwright Jeff Augustin and directed by Giovanna Sardelli (The North Pool). 

On a balmy night in Miami, a soon-to-be mother, Sula, floats ashore on a car tire. Having braved a perilous journey to escape her native Haiti, Sula is determined to forge a better life in America for her unborn son. She soon finds safety in an apartment building that shelters refugees in need, joining a diverse community of immigrants, each with their own unique dreams and dilemmas. But even though the life she has hoped for seems within reach, Sula knows she can’t outrun her demons forever. 

Laced with wisdom, wit and grace, Little Children Dream of God is a timely new drama about learning to start a new life by facing the one you left behind. Limited engagement through April 5, 2015

"A warm, fanciful drama with an excellent cast."
