AMERICAN DREAMS
It's a Game. It's a Show.  It's America

Imagine a world where the only way to gain U.S. citizenship is by competing in a live online game show. Welcome to American Dreams where each night, you, the audience gets to choose who will become your new neighbor. This playful participatory performance takes a page from America’s favorite game shows and uses voting, polling, trivia and more to explore who and what we choose to believe—and how those choices come to shape who we are.

About AMERICAN DREAMS

You are invited into the live online studio audience of American Dreams, a game show where you, the audience, decide which contestant will receive the ultimate prize: instant citizenship to “the greatest nation on earth”.  This playful participatory performance takes a page from America’s favorite game shows and uses voting, polling, trivia and more to explore who and what we choose to believe.  Welcome to American Dreams. “It’s a Game. It’s a Show. It’s America!”

American Dreams premiered live at Cleveland Public Theatre in 2018. This fall, the show launches as a live online theater production nationwide in a virtual tour that will begin at Arizona State University and then head across the U.S., inviting audiences into playful, timely engagement and dialogue around immigration and what it means to be a citizen of this country.
