"Irrational Dreams", is a seriocomic 'soap opera' script about the film industry in LA. the conceit of this work is that it uses the same plot devices of the 'traditional' soap opera - adultery, blackmail, turbulent careers, budding romance, etc. - only for comedic / satirical affect, rather than the antiseptic Drama of the TV soap
"Irrational Dreams" consists of thirty-three scenes; it is meant to be performed episodically, rather than All At once.
