About Dream Boston
The Dream Boston series of short audio plays was conceived and commissioned by the Huntington Theatre Company artistic department, and gives local playwrights the opportunity to imagine their favorite locations, landmarks, and friends in a future Boston, when people can once again meet and connect in the city – a vision of a future Boston that is somewhere between dream and reality.
