An award-winning play exploring the mind of a young Black queer man wrestling with anxiety.
After counting down the days until he gets a fresh start, Malachi is settling into his new life at university. He’s got a stack of books to read and he’s met Kojo, a musician who’s basically perfect.
However, he is plagued by repetitive nightmares, which involve drowning in the ocean and a beast hunting him down. As the boundaries between nightmare and reality break down, Malachi must fight harder than ever to stay afloat.
'Dreaming and Drowning' was the recipient of a Mustapha Matura Award, and is written & directed by Kwame Owusu (staff director for 'Romeo & Julie').
