Set inside the troubled mind of an insomniac, this experimental ten-minute play explores the psychological landscape of that unsettling place between awake and asleep. A tired, but restless Lucas tries to lull himself to dreamland with relaxation exercises. The personification of Lucas's racing thoughts appears. He desperately pleads for Lucas to stay awake to avoid the beasts that feast that are waiting in his dreams. Succumbing to exhaustion, Lucas leaves his subconscious self to do battle alone in his nightmare world. This surreal script allows for maximal creative interpretation and has no technical requirements. A version of this play is also available for a cast of two female actors under the title Lucy Dreaming.
