Collective Encounters Youth Theatre presents


What would it take for you to feel truly free?

Trapped by thoughts, beliefs, judgements, & expectations, a group of characters encounter each other in a mysterious library.

They each discover a utopian world in which they are magically freed from their constraints.

Is this just a dream, or a vision of a future reality?

Can they bring their new-found freedoms back with them to the real world?

Created by Collective Encounters Youth Theatre in autumn 2021 in partnership with Focal Studios and Phill Howley.
