Red Eye is lowkey about it, but the theater is a continual producer of new plays by women. Not exclusively, but often. New Yorker Julia Jarcho’s 2011 play, Dreamless Land, first produced by the New York Players, is receiving its area premier. Red Eye core actress Miriam Must describes the play by asking “who hasn’t imagined themselves as a young romantic lead or a daring international spy or a hero of epic proportions? Dreamless Land is a coming of age story that takes you on a journey like no other through a landscape defined by familiar pop culture references – from horror movies to James Bond flicks to romantic comedies. Can our everyday lives ever measure up to the fantastical worlds of our dreams.”  Susannah Stahlmann plays young protagonist, Haley. Featuring Must, Mark Benzel, and Bruce Abas. Steve Busa, a master of the avant-garde, is the director.
