Eliana Pipes’s “DREAM HOU$E”
A 29-HOUR WORKSHOP
Checkmark has been a fan of Eliana since our founding, and we couldn’t be more excited to have the pleasure of developing her newest play, from the first draft to the first public presentation. Thanks to the support of WP Theater and INTAR Theatre, Checkmark will be facilitating a 29-Hour workshop of DREAM HOU$E,” this December. The workshop will serve as an opportunity to bring actors and a director into the room for 4 days to rehearse, revise, and provide space for Eliana’s newest play to reach its fullest potential.
A bit about the play:
Two Latinx sisters on an HGTV-style show are selling their family home, hoping to capitalize on the gentrification in the “changing neighborhood.” In the process they discover details of the family’s past and the potential for their future, forcing them to grapple with what’s lost and gained in the quest for upward mobility.
