Announcing Of Forgotten Dreams

I am very happy to announce that Of Forgotten Dreams is now being featured on Tablespoon Tuesdays by the Tablespoon Theatre Company. The very talented Joshua Evan made this fabulous experimental film with writing by me. It’s a short film that you can watch from the leisure of your lockdown environment.
