The Stuff of Dreams: Behind the Scenes of an American Community Theater. An account of a Mass. community theatre’s controversial staging of M. Butterfly.

“No written contracts have been signed, no cash exchanged, no professional reputations put at stake to help ensure that the promises are kept, the goals met. All they can do for the moment is skate along on that sheer, fine surface of trust, waiting for a firmer base to form beneath it.”

As a actor in community theatre since 2nd grade, I saw a lot of my own experience (and experiences that I wish I had) in this amazing narrative. Highly recommended to anyone with any experience in the theatre.
