Inspired by Ibsen's Peer Gynt, a young man goes on a fantastical adventure to find himself. Peer must confront a crisis of sexual identity as he encounters gluttonous Trolls, a mischievous guardian, and his one true love. Set in a modern gay world, The Illusory Adventures of a Dreamer is a darkly hilarious journey of discovery. #WhoAmI?
