DAYBREAK is a powerful new play that hightlights Armenian-American history. Set in three time periods, the play is inspidered by the true stories of two women friends, survivors of the Armenian genocide and using memory, dreams, music, carries the story of these women into the 21st century future to celebrate the endurance of the human spirit.
Playwright Joyce Van Dyke says, "Throughout the play, dreams overtake the "reality" of the action...that the impact of genocide does not just break human bonds... it ruptures time and space. It;s the most ambitious and experimental play i've written, both in its dream-play form and in its creative process, composed from first-person testimonies, dreams, and primary source material. It;s also by far the biggest play I've written, in the number of characters, time-span, subject, and setting (two continents and a dream- world). The play is both intimate and epic."
