In 2012, New Hampshire Humanities commissioned playwright Genevieve Aichele to write a play based on the real life stories of refugees and immigrants in New Hampshire. The result was the play Dreaming Again, which Aichele based on oral interviews with over 40 people who had left homes and lives in other countries to resettle in New Hampshire. Dreaming Again was performed by the NHTP across the state of New Hampshire to primarily adult audiences.  In 2013, NHTP collaborated with the Mariposa Museum in Peterborough to bring Dreaming Again to 16 schools as well as to community audiences in Portsmouth and Peterborough.

 

In 2023, NHTP will again be collaborating with Mariposa Museum, who will be coordinating the school tour across New Hampshire, and presenting it at NH Theatre Project here in Portsmouth.

 

The multicultural cast features five actors and three musicians playing multiple roles. Dreaming Again also uses music from many different cultures and traditions, arranged by Agnes Charlesworth.

Two shows only, Saturday, October 28 at 4:00pm and 7:00pm

This project has been funded by the Eppes-Jefferson Foundation
