DREAM BOSTON

A new series of audio plays powered by the Huntington.

Welcome to “Dream Boston,” a future vision of our city that is somewhere between dream and reality.

Through short audio plays, Dream Boston asks local playwrights to imagine their favorite locations, landmarks, and friends in a future Boston, when we can once again meet and thrive in our city. These micro-plays take place at locations such as the MIT Great Dome on the 4th of July while the sounds of the “1812 Overture” float in the background, at the Boston Public Library during a minor dust-up between two bookworms, and a not-so-perfect first date on the edge of the Boston Common.
