CARPE DREAM By Pauline Dessler
A West Coast Premiere
Opens August 26th at The Theatre District
Carpe Dream – when fear challenges love, a little feminine “magic” may be the only answer!

Hollywood, CA – The West Coast premiere of Carpe Dream by Pauline Dessler will open at The Theatre District on Friday, August 26th and continue through October 8th, 2005. When a young dancer becomes agoraphobic, she finds that her fears threaten to destroy not just her career, but all that she loves in life. Will a paralyzing fear consume her future? When fear challenges love, The Goddesses of Dionysus and a little feminine “magic” 
may be the only answer! Carpe Dream is a funny and poignant journey through time, dreams, love and fear.
