Tonight on SleepTalker, we’ll hear a story from last year. Bec talks to Declan Mulcahy, director of ____day Night’s Dream, about his theatrical exploration of the dreaming mind. Declan recruited seven performers to write their dreams into an immersive play, where the audience followed the cast through the night and into dreamland.

____day Night’s Dream returns at this year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival; from September 22nd, Declan takes over a Melbourne apartment with a new set of dream adaptations. Find out more about the show at Declan’s beautiful new website

A version of this story (then called ‘Creative Freedom’) first aired on All the Best, in an episode called ‘In Your Dreams’. For that episode, Bec spoke to people whose dreams followed them well into their waking hours. Head to the All the Best website to hear the original. 

SleepTalker is produced by Bec Fary.
