With a cast of characters that includes a mouse in a suit, a tired seagull, a studious cow and a sweet potato queen, eSe Teatro’s Fermín’s Great Book of Dreams, an original play by local playwright Julieta Vitullo, tells the story of a young boy who struggles with belief when he doesn’t receive a visit from Ratón Pérez, a mouse that visits children after they lose a tooth and exchanges the tooth for a gift. The event sends the mouse and his friends off on a quest to discover why children’s wishes are getting lost.
The story’s magical premise and quirky characters will certainly captivate children, but it will resonate with adults too as we all find ourselves navigating the uncertain terrain of the continued pandemic together in our daily lives, looking for a little magic and a little normal in the small graces.
