The Hunt for the American Dream theatre series by Three Bone Theatre @ The Arts Factory at West End Studios
Nov 4 2022 – Aug 19 2023 all-day

Anyone who has participated in CBI’s Equity Impact Circles knows that we examine collectively the importance of Stories, Resources, and Rules in our society and how these impact People. Three Bone Theatre also does this with their newest season of theatre productions.  Season 11 gathers four powerful and thrilling pieces of award-winning contemporary theatre that examine the concept of the American Dream.

The selected stories, fact and fiction, shine a light on marginalized communities who fight against all odds to try and reach the opportunity and comfort that has been promised to them over the last 200 years.

These four shows question who has access to the American Dream and help us reimagine a new dream, one that is truly inclusive and accessible to everyone.
