The American Dream / The Sandbox Summary

Cherry Lane Theatre welcomes back Edward Albee with The American Dream and The Sandbox, which are being billed together as an evening of One-Acts.

The New Yorker hailed The American Dream as "unique … brilliant … a comic nightmare, fantasy of the highest order." The story of one of America's most dysfunctional families, it is a ferocious, uproarious attack on the substitution of artificial values for real values—a startling tale of murder and morality that rocks middle-class ethics to its complacent foundations. The American Dream was originally produced at Cherry Lane Theatre in 1961 by Richard Barr and Clinton Wilder. The Sandbox was originally produced at Cherry Lane Theatre in 1962 in a collaboration between producers Richard Barr, Clinton Wilder and playwright Edward Albee. Mr. Albee will be directing the production, schedule allowing.
