Continuous Dream is a podcast of dramatic writing, performed by professional actors in Chicago, launched in September of 2019.
We’re back! Poet and Warrior is our most ambitious episode yet. At an hour and forty-five minutes, it is my longest play. We hope you’ll enjoy the sound design for a complete audio experience. Poet and Warrior is the story of thirty years in the lives of Irish poet William Butler Years and the revolutionary Maud Gonne. Starring: Jeff Broitman, Linsey Summers, Erin Caswell, Baird Brutscher, and Pete Blatchford.
We have established an email address for our company. It’s firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s a link on the upper right of our home page.
The two “Summer Comedies” sketches, “Proofreading” and “Crossing Over,” are award-winners. “Proofreading” was third place for the James Stevenson Prize in 2019, and “Crossing Over” was included in the American Blues Theatre’s Ripped Festival in 2020.
We’ve posted a new “Behind the Scenes” episode for this as well:
We have a new episode of two comedy plays, starring Erin Caswell and Baird Brutscher.

The script will be available to read on their site through June 2020.
Hope you enjoy it!
We are also ending our Patreon campaign and taking down the link.
Our new episode is a ten-minute monologue called “Shop Girl.” We hope you’ll enjoy this effort, recorded under sheltering conditions.
We’ve made a five-minute promo to introduce our bonus content. All the Behind the Scenes conversations between Amy and Sam so far are now public, to provide content for our friends during this time of sheltering.
For these days of sheltering, we’ve added a bonus episode normally exclusive to Patreon. Amy and Sam talk about the writing of Wells and Welles.
Our newest audio drama is based on the real-life meeting between HG Wells and Orson Welles, in October of 1940. It was two years after the famous and infamous “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast, when Orson Welles caused a nationwide panic of people thinking that Martians had invaded New Jersey. HG Wells had written his novel 50 years earlier. Still alive when the radio adaptation came out, he was none too pleased.
For Christmas 2019, Amy has recorded a short monologue about her experience growing up with the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol. She talks about the details that make it a fine film, and a personal discovery that made her understand the heart of Scrooge’s transformation in a new light.
For the close of Thanksgiving weekend we have some light comedies to give you cheer. “A Cup of Tea,” and “Pre-Existing Condition” are one-minute shorts, followed by “Klingon” and “A Review of Waiting for Godot for the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.” Starring ensemble members Erin Caswell, Pete Blatchford, Linsey Summers, and Baird Brutscher.
