Sweet Dreams is a short piece that serves as a prologue to a longer show Shine On Collective is staging in October 2017. The show, which takes place in a U-Haul, was listed at a 15 minute run-time but was more like 20–25 minutes. Experiencing a show in a U-Haul is not as bad as it sounds and, if anything, it works perfectly for this show. What they have done with this space reminds me a bit of what The Nest has done with their garage which, if you’ve been through The Nest, is a great compliment.

One minor quibble to the U-Haul setting is I could hear a portion of another patron’s show going on during mine and it was slightly distracting. I’ve experienced much more disruption at other shows but it’s worth mentioning in case you have the opportunity to take the first time slot for the night.

The acting, story, and setting are all intriguing and I can’t wait to continue the story. In fact when I was handed a flyer for the full show in October I replied “I wouldn’t miss it for the world”.
