Dreamscape is the second play by Leaning House director, Miriam Higgins and is based on the real life experience of her friend Greg Felton - musician, video maker, blogger, and one-time coma patient.
In January 2014 Greg became very ill and was put into a medically induced coma. Whilst in this coma he had some fantastical dreams which he wrote down later as part of his rehabilitation in a blog - Intensive Care Stories. Locked deep inside his own brain, he's trying to get home in his new version of reality. Join three members of Greg's brain as they try to work out what's real, where they are, what they're doing and where they've been. A surreal, uplifting play about survival and the need to catch a train home.
Dreamscape premiered at Offbeat Festival in Oxford on 30th June 2018 at the Old Fire Station before going on to the Buxton Fringe at Underground at The Clubhouse 5th, 8th, and 9th July 2018.

An intellectual curiosity.
It becomes more fascinating as it progresses, and I was sorry that it had to end, but it did have an excellent ending for this performance. Dreamscape is well worth an hour of your time and quite unforgettable.
A cleverly written and ambitious play will have you pondering about the nature of reality and the dividing line between it and fantasy.
Dreamscape is neatly choreographed and dynamically performed.
