Directed by Professor Domenick Scudera, the play by Elmer Rice features the character Georgina Allerton, a young woman whose head is filled with dreams – daydreams, that is. Stuck in a dead-end job and a failing relationship, Georgina allows her imagination to run Walter Mitty style, giving her dull life some fantastic, adventurous twists and turns. Ursinus College revives this lost treasure to remind us all to dream big and be spontaneous.
