Adam’s Dream

Adam’s Dream by Allison West. Surreal comedy set in Harlem telling the story of Adam, an African American lawyer, who loses his mind and thinks he's the King of Harlem. He visits an unethical white psychotherapist who prescribes mind bending drugs in order to see if Adam might have the ultimate dream - the one which the biblical Adam had. The play constantly shifts between a state of waking and one of dreaming, with the effect of not knowing if the characters are where they appear to be. Director: Malcolm Frederick. Cast: Lachele Carl, Lee Duroshola, Chris Gilbert, Wade Jackman, Kenneth Jay, Ian Poitier and Riba Akabusi. Performed on a National tour and at Battersea Arts Centre, London (10/10/1989-28/05/1989).
