I Dream of Chang and Eng by Philip Kan Gotanda

Mainstage Theater, Theater Arts Center, UC Santa Cruz
Presented by:  Theater Arts Dept
Event Dates:  Friday, May 25, 2012 - Sunday, June 3, 2012

Directed by Gina Marie Hayes

I Dream of Chang and Eng follows the story of the original Siamese twins as they attempt to re-mount their successful European “freak-show” tour under the watchful eye of circus impresario P.T. Barnum. From this perspective, the twins look back on their life together – a childhood in Siam (Thailand), a long voyage across the ocean, life on a plantation in America – and their search for meaning in a life spent center stage. 

Featuring puppetry, a greek chorus, and freak-show trickery, I Dream of Chang and Eng spans three continents and several decades in a sweeping, surrealistic journey of discovery.
