Chicago Puppet Fest presents:

POSTPONED TO 2023—Torry Bend: Dreaming

Dreaming, Torry Bend’s collaboration with playwright Howard Craft and director JaMeeka Holloway, examines the racist legacy of comics and animation by following two men deeply affected by Winsor McCay’s comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland. In a world where comic book characters live side by side with real people, Malachi Washington works to free comics cast in prejudiced bodies while Winsor’s son, Bob McCay, seeks to revive the old comic strip. What follows is a compelling story of reckoning and racial healing.
