Written by Dominic Conneely Hughes
Directed by Adwitha Arumugam
Devised by The Company
An air crash investigator fights to convince her boss that the incident they’re investigating has more to it than meets the eye, with wildly different accounts of people on board that seemingly bend the rules of reality itself.
An exploration of how groups of people perceive the same event vastly differently and how background, personality, and political beliefs shape them, Dreamliner investigates how social amnesia and collective thinking are more prevalent than one might believe. In an age of recurring collective tragedies and crisis management, this is a story in which myriad voices air their darkest, most personal experiences, from a seemingly innocuous event, illuminating how we might be better off stopping to take a look at those among us to wonder just how they are coping amidst it all.
Dreamliner is a part-written, part-devised piece of theatre from writer Dominic Conneely Hughes and director Adwitha Arumugam, presented by acclaimed new writing company Encompass Productions.
This production is part of the Homecoming Theatre Festival running 26 - 30 April at the White Bear Theatre, presented by Encompass Productions.
