Questions Asked of Dying Dreams
by Philip Vassallo
Questions Asked of Dying Dreams comprises four one-acts. “What Do You Charge for a Cure?” concerns a director of a clinical program for developmentally disabled individuals who confronts her professional and personal doubts as she deals with a client and a new intake. In “How Silent Do I Sound?” a bigoted, aging moving man unexpectedly meets his new coworker and his own destiny. In “Do I Bleed in the Dark?” a homeless ex-boxer has a final chance to make something meaningful of his life in his dying moments. “Isn’t This the Way You Wanted Me?” presents an embittered, frustrated wife who rethinks her marriage and life in light of her husband’s remarkable transformation.
